AGOST CASTLE

Erected after the Christian Reconquest it suffered various vicissitudes that gradually deteriorated it. All that remains of the old castle is the base of a tower and a few walls that have been reused in the shrine of Saint Peter. This shrine must originally have been a small castle chapel, which, having been restored and rebuilt on various occasions, is currently closed to the public given its state of conservation. From the Castle and the shrine one can make out the pretty view of the Valley of Alicante, which stretches out as far as the sea.

Agost

Agost is to be found 18km from Alicante, the capital of the province. Situated at the foot of the Maigmó, the north of the town is to be highlighted for the great value of its landscape, recognised on a European level as a LIC (Community Interest Spot). A large part of the municipal district cultivates dessert grapes, thus forming part of the D.O. (prestigious food and wine product classification) Uva de Mesa Embolsada del Vinalopó (Vinalopó Dessert Pocketed Grape). The pottery is to be highlighted and we can still find ten factories, half of which still continue to use the traditional pottery techniques. The cultural heritage is closely linked to pottery production as well as to numerous festive manifestations of great tradition and popularity.
