La Pobla d'Ifac

The so-called Medieval Town of Ifac stands out as currently being a unique archaeological site in the Valencian Community, being the only settlement from the conquest period that has not been previously investigated, excavated or altered, and therefore making it a truly exceptional and unparalleled site.

It represents an urban area from the late 13th century, established under the patronage of Admiral Roger de Llúria, one of the most prominent figures of that time. The site is a vast walled enclosure with a complex system of entrances, rooms, warehouses, houses and an impressive church dedicated to Our Lady of the Angels (Nostra Senyora dels Àngels), with a mediaeval necropolis at the entrance. This short-lived structure lasted no more than a century. Historical events led to its abandonment and the relocation of the settlers from Ifac to the mountain area, where the walls and the historical centre of Calp are currently located.

The settlement features a fortified enclosure with over 800 linear metres of walls. The northern area is in a better condition, with a well-preserved perimeter of over 250 metres and eleven towers connected by a walkway that allowed the people to walk along the entire fortified perimeter. The bell tower is the best-preserved structure, standing at ten metres in height.
