The town of Dénia is a great daytrip away from the hustle and bustle of some of the bigger cities of Spain, but it is not without its excitement. Come for their popular bonfire festival in March, when huge paper mache statues, called Fallas are set up throughout the town and then set on fire!
Visit Dénia during July for another festival, Bous a la Mar (literally "bulls at sea"). The highlight of this week long celebration is watching bulls run down the main street Marques de Campo, then be chased into the Mediterranean Sea by locals daring enough to enter a makeshift bull ring.
Any time of year you can enjoy popular sites such as Dénia's castle; a stunning picturesque castle topping a rocky crag overlooking the city. It dates back to the 11th and 12th century, and features amazing views around the sea, the city, and the backlands. It is the perfect place to begin your tour of Denia by Alicante car hire. The castle houses the Palau del Governador with its museum.
There is evidence that humans have lived in this area since prehistoric times, and Dénia has significant Iberian ruins on its outlying hillsides. To learn more about the culture and history of the city and this area of Spain make a stop at Dénia's Museo Etnologico.
A daytrip to Dénia is easy by car hire from Alicante or other major cities. It is conveniently situated halfway between Alicante and Valencia, in the province of Alicante. Save money by reserving your Alicante rental car online before your trip.
