Its port and fishing trade is more active than ever, commerce is thriving, and it is host to some of the areas biggest hospitals and courts of justice. Although expansion is evident, Denia has retained a lot of its old charm. The fishermen’s quarter preserves its delightful cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings.
