Here you will find beautiful buildings such as the church of Sant Bartomeu and the Chapel of Santa Anna. Those who want to visit the old town of Jávea should keep in mind that a parkingplace is not always easy to find.
The port Duanes del Mar consists of two parts: the marina and the fishing port. In the morning the fishing boats come ashore to bring the many trays with the fish just caught to the fish auction.
