Located approximately 2 kilometers from the coast we find the old town of Calpe, in this small and charming old town , you can discover the history of the city of Calpe and its most beautiful corners among its labyrinth of streets and stairs.
Due to the constant threat from pirates and corsairs in ancient times, coastal populations moved away from the coastline and often built walled enclosures and fortifications for their protection. This is the case of Calpe , which had a wall that ran around the perimeter of the old town to defend itself from pirate attacks. The ideal thing in the old town of Calpe is to stroll quietly through this charming place to discover all its corners. We can follow the signposted Tourist Route through the small narrow and cobbled streets , the pretty alleys full of plants and flowers , the decorated stairs or visiting the old city walls , the churches and the ancient Roman ruins. One of the most outstanding points of the old town of Calpe is the Torreó de la Peça , located in the Plaza de la Vila , it was part of the double defensive wall with artillery pieces that defended the city in the 15th century and currently houses the Museum of Collecting.
During the tour you can also visit the Parish Church of Nuestra Señora de las Nieves, a unique parish that is also located in the Plaza de la Vila, in the heart of the historic center. The Museum of History and Archeology of Calpe, located on Calle Santísimo Cristo, is the perfect place to discover the secrets of the past of this beautiful city. Along its streets we can see various murals and colored mosaics on its walls , among which the Mural Mosaic on the facade of the tourist office stands out, the work of the Alicante painter and muralist Gastón Castelló that represents his vision of the town of Calpe.

El tour fue muy interesante, descubrimos muchisimas cosas y el guía fue muy simpático. Una vez terminado el tour no tuvo ningún problema en resolver todas nuestras preguntas y recomendarnos locales para comer y cenar.
El guía muy atento y simpático apesar de q éramos dos personas se realizó el tour, descubrimos q calpe no es sólo playa y Mariscada tiene un casco antiguo pequeño pero coqueto y muy bien explicado por el guia.
EL TOUR FUE ALGO INCREIBLE LUGARES BIEN BONITOS Y EL GUIA MUY ATENTO Y EXPLICANDO CADA PARTE DEL LO RECOMIENDO
El tour ha estado genial, éramos sólo nosotros dos y ha sido un tour prácticamente privado. Recomendable para conocer mejor los lugares que visitamos.
La visita al casco antiguo me ha gustado hacerla con Guru walkers ya que al ir con el guía te va haciendo fijarte en detalles que de otra manera te pasarían por alto.
