Bordering on the province of Alicante, Oliva is the second most important town in the region of La Safor.
It boasts 10 kilometres of clean beaches and shallow waters, backed almost in their entirety by dunes which separate the orange groves from the sea. In town, which is well-preserved, the Christian village and the Moorish suburb stand out. Noteworthy monuments include the Archpriestal Palace, the convent of Rebollet, the “Torre de Comare” – from the 5th and 6th centuries-, San Roque –from the 18th and 19th centuries- and the ruins of the castle of Santa Ana. Also worth a visit are the house of Gregorio Mayans and the ancestral homes from the 17th to the 19th centuries on Calle Tamarit.
