Villena is a city in the province of Alicante full with history that you just cannot miss. Examples of its historical heritage can be seen in some of its archaeological sites, including the Cueva del Cochino or the Cabezo Redondo, home to an ancient Bronze Age settlement dating back over 3500 years old.

Another jewel in the crown of Villena is Castillo de la Atalaya, a fortress built during the Almohad Empire in the twelfth century, used as a refuge for the Muslim population bursting with history and legends.

Nor can you miss out on the series of religious buildings that the city has to offer, such as the Archpriestal Church of Santiago or the Church of Santa María, as well as the
different Modernist style buildings dating to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
