Discover Villena, on Spain´s Southern Costa Blanca

  • Posted by : Expert Villas

Villena is an inland town on the southern Costa Blanca, a good sized place with about 35,000 people living there. It has a long and often brutal history as do many towns in this area, having been occupied by the early Christians, then the Moors before coming back into the hands of the Christian Spanish. All this is long in the past of course but still comes alive through relics such as the 11th century Moorish castle, the Gothic church of Santa Jaume and from artefacts in the archaeological museum. It also comes to life in the Moors and Christians festival, one of the region’s biggest such festivals and part of a busy programme of fiestas and events in Villena.

As you would expect with a town of this size there is a good infrastructure and a wide choice of places to eat, drink or to go shopping. There are very good transport links with two railway stations (including a high speed rail link) and a motorway close by. Alicante airport is about a 40 minute drive away and the coast is a similar distance.
