Biar is about 45 minutes inland of Alicante City in the Alto Vinalopo region of the northern Costa Blanca. It is a fairly small town with a population of about 3,600 although there is evidence that people have been living in this spot as far back as prehistoric times. This is probably due to the fertile land and mild weather, with the town sheltering at the foot of the Sierra Mariola hills. Many of these peaks are densely forested while the nearby Fontanella has a number of waterfalls and natural fountains. These allow for the irrigation of orchards growing various produce and meaning the area is pleasantly green.

Sights to see in the town include the castle and churches while Biar is also well known for its production of shoes and textiles. As with almost all Spanish towns there is a lively programme of fiestas and other events which the local town hall or tourist office will be happy to give you more information on.

There is a choice of bars and restaurants, with local dishes including rabbit with rice, gazpacho and almond rolls, all reflecting the locally farmed produce.
