These are old towns with a 3,000-year history, which have emerged because remains of settlements have been found. There are also remains from the Moorish period with the old fortification Castell de Ferro, which is the first to be seen because it is located on a 90 meter high mountain and was a perfect place for protection and guarding in the past.

In the municipality, time stands still and with its subtropical climate, everything you need is grown. Agriculture employs many. In addition, you have access to fish. The advantage of having so many small villages with only a few houses is that most people are close to their farms.
The tourism business is also large and it causes the population to triple in the summertime. The beach is nice as in so many other places.
