  • The enigmatic Penon de Ifach stands proudly at 332m at the head of Calpe, surrounded by the shimmering blue of the Mediterranean Sea. It's a huge calcareous rock, joined to the mainland by a detritic isthmus. With a protected surface area of just forty five hectares, Penon de Ifach is among the smallest nature reserves in Europe. Despite its measurement, the reserve attracts roughly a hundred,000 guests each year.

    Historical past of Penon de Ifach

    All through history, Penon de Ifach has served a number of purposes. In the 4th to 3rd centuries earlier than Christ, there was an Iberian village on the foot of the rock, on its western side. Later, in Roman times, the settlement moved to the isthmus joining the rock to the mainland, although findings affirm that the sides of the rock have been as soon as once more inhabited throughout the Center Ages.

    Penon de Ifach once served as a landmark for mariners. It was then used as a watchtower, with its lofty peak of 332m offering an excellent vantage level to identify approaching pirates and invaders. Regardless of finest efforts, continuing attacks from the ocean pressured inhabitants down to the village of Calpe.
