Javea is a small, historic town, free of high-rise buildings, is situated between the San Antonio and La Nao points and enjoys the impressive and magnificent protection of Mount Montgó. The clean, warm, blue Mediterranean Sea laps the beautiful beaches and coves that Javea has to offer.

The town is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes’ drive from Alicante towards the north-eastern tip of the Costa Blanca. Javea old town is steeped in history and it’s evident in the architecture, with its Tosca stone porticoes, gothic bay windows, wrought iron window bars and balcony railings. The church of San Bartolemé in the town centre is an example of late gothic architecture with a defensive character. The "Soler Blasco" Archaeological Museum is close by in the narrow streets and offers a wealth of information about Iberian history.

Outside the town, following the road to the San Antonio cape, the architectural sites include the monastery of Nuestra Señora de los Angeles, a series of small hermitages clutch the slopes of the mountain and ancient windmills dominate the landscape.
