“This is a good museum about the different periods of the history of the beautiful city of Valencia. The artifacts and objects on display were very nicely presented. There are loads of interactive things too which I think are great for kids too (it is also fun as an adult! :D) with videos, video subtitles for hard of hearing guests, and more. I really liked the interior of the museum too (an old aqueduct I believe) , there were information books in English and other languages so that all the descriptions of things on display were accessible in different languages. ”

Mountain
“Mongo National Park. Great walking and views. The climb to the top is a solid climb, not to be underestimated. Park for free at the shooting range, just off the road from Javea Old Town to Denia, then walk the hundred metres back to the car park entrance (NOT all the way to the road) where there is a map. Take that path to the right through bushes towards the mountain. The path goes through bush which shelters it and can lead to muddy patches after rain. Where this path joins a private road, turn right (again towards the mountain) and walk for a kilometre or so to an open area and look for the path on the right. This is the start of the climb proper and quickly progresses to a rocky set of switchbacks/zig zags, always climbing. The surface is rough with loose rocks and requires solid shoes. If you try to do it without stops, the climb is quite hard and tests your fitness but stop to take in the glorious views, and it becomes a little more relaxed. Towards the top, the path leaves the face overlooking Denia and the car park and goes round the corner to overlook Ondara. It is here that the path as such ceases and it becomes a rock scramble and the route travels along a steep drop. It's all quite manageable but it requires care and could challenge those who do not like heights. I wasn't concerned. The top gives a panorama that is breathtaking but which might disappear at any moment due to cloud. Don't underestimate the importance of the mountain and its weather - take water, some food and emergency clothing and tell someone when you expect to be back. Cell phone coverage was good when I climbed. Even so I was very tired when I returned to my car. It took me a total of three hours fifteen minutes car to car.”

Historic Site
“Built by Pere Bonfill, who was inspired by the Castell Nuovo towers in Naples, the Quart Towers represent a good example of late Gothic military constructions. They were conceived as defensive gates for the city and until 1874 were known as the Torres de la Cal (The Limestone Towers), since the limestone that came into the city had to come in through these gates. The back of the towers was opened to allow a view of the inside. It was the women´s prison for some time.”
