Alcoy, the beautiful things are inside the province of Alicante
Alicante is well-known for its golden sand beaches and crystal clear waters. However, our city has many beautiful spots beyond the coast. One of those places is the city of Alcoy. The best way to get to Alcoy from Alicante is to take A7 highway and drive for 50 minutes. For those who do not like to drive, you can take the train at very affordable prices.
History and related monuments
The origins of Alcoy go back to about 40,000 years ago with the first settlements in the area of El Salt. Remains are preserved in caves with rock paintings of hunting scenes. We recommend visiting the primitive cemetery of Los Llometes, Cueva de la Pastora and the villages La Mola Alta de Serelles or El Puig.
Further on, the area was occupied by the Iberian and Roman people whose remains can be seen in the Archaeological Museum of Alcoy. El Alcazar, the remains of Castellar or Arab fortress placed to the west of Alcoy are preserved from the Reconquest.
In the XVIIIth century, the War of Succession took place and the people from Alcoy encouraged Carlos, which earned him the suppression of certain privileges. Years later, Felipe V forgave them and granted them privileges creating the Royal Cloth Factory. Next to the factory you can see the Chapel of San Miguel.
The XIXth century left its industrial footprint in modernist streets to travel today as Santa Rita or San Antonio.
Apart from the festivities in honor of the patrons of Virgen de los Lirios and Sant Maure, the most important celebrations in Alcoy are the festival of the Moors and Christians and Christmas Trilogy, both celebrations being of National Tourist Interest.
The festival of the Moors and Christians is celebrated in honor of St. George and its date is not fixed, although it is around April 23. They commemorate the uprising of the Muslims in 1276 where their leader Al-Azraq would die thanks to the divine help of St. George.
Christmas Trilogy has been celebrated since 1885 and it is the oldest Three King’s Parade in Spain. It is celebrated every 5th of January.
Among the main culinary specialties of Alcoy you cannot fail to try their sausages and tapetes, traditional meal, which are nothing more than appetizers such as aladroc meatballs (anchovies) or espardenyes. Other typical dishes are bajoques farcides, olleta, pericana or borreta.
If you have a sweet tooth, you can enjoy peladillas, torrat or pinyonets. And the typical drink is the liqueur coffee that can be of two types: with coca cola (plis-play) or with iced lemon (mentireta).
Do not stop coming to Alcoy!
