Historical-artistic old quarter of the city

Img 1: HISTORICAL-ARTISTIC OLD QUARTER OF THE CITY

The Old Quarter of the town preserves an enviable degree of conservation. Its traditionally seafaring and commercial character has determined its particular architecture, with a distribution and layout typical to the era of the conquest and the re-conquest. In excavations in the area there have been found remains from the Iberian era, of Phoenician or Egyptian origin.

The Fortress-Church of the Asunción, in the Historical-Artistic quarter is worth a visit, belonging to the Catalan Gothic style. The streets of Colón and Canalejas conserve buildings of different architectural styles, which range from the XIX and the XX century. Another of the essential attractions are the hanging polychromatic houses above the river Amadorio, which also serve as icon to the town.
