The Costa Blanca / Valencia / Alicante Province region
The apartment is situated in Mutxamel, a small village which was traditionally linked to Alicante and belonged to this city during various periods. It became an independent municipality in 1736. Due to its proximity it became a summer resort for the inhabitants of Alicante, who built the 'Conde de Montemar', the Peñacerrada Palace and other grand mansions.
The Parish Church, with its 14th-century gothic tower, is of particular note. Of all of the villages around Alicante this is the one most closely linked to agriculture and despite its proximity to the capital it still has extensive farming land. The canalisation work and irrigation ditches, and the dams on the Monnegre River, are extremely interesting.
