This was the start of Benissa, Calpe, Teulada and Senija. In the 17th century pirates entered the town and deported about 300 people to Algeria. They stayed 5 years in prison until they were exchanged for gold and pirate prisoners. In the 19th century the fishing industry started. Already before the second world ward tourists visited Calpe. In the 1940s and 1950s many tourist accommodations arose. But the big construction boom was in the second half of the 1960s. Since then Calpe developed into a mature town and a popular seaside resort.
Sea and fishing
Due to its location the sea always played an important role in the lives of the Calpe inhabitants. Fishing was for many years the motor of Calpe´s economy. Today the boats still leave the port early in the morning to catch fish. Late in the afternoon they return to the port and they bring the fish to the auction (La Lonja). From Monday to Friday, around 17.00 hrs, the fish auction takes place. There is a special area for visitors to follow what is happening.

Peñon de Ifach
This famous rock is also called “little Gibraltar. It has a height of 332m. It is a natural park and protected as such. The flora is diverse and there are more than 300 different animal species living here. There is a nice hike to the top of the rock. An easy walk up to the tunnel. After that the hike is more challenging. The path is small and sometimes slippery. At certain points there are ropes to assist you. The views during the walk are fantastic. It is better not going up when the sea gulls build their nests as they sometimes get aggressive. It takes 2-3 hours to go up and down.
