Denia Castle is a castle that served as a fortress during the Mediterranean piracy era. It is located in the highest height of the city of Denia in the Province of Alicante.
It is one of the elements that defines the historical topography of the urban nucleus. On its slopes, remains of houses and fortifications of the Roman Diannium have been discovered.
Its design dates back to the Islamic era, between the eleventh and twelfth centuries.
The destruction of the Palace and Vila Vella during the War of succession and the abandonment of the military square in 1859 define the last centuries.
At present, the castle is configured as an emblematic heritage complex, scene of conservation and restoration works, as well as innovative dissemination proposals.
