This is Moraira how it looks today.
The Historic Castle

•Enjoy a whole day in Moraira. Wander along the promenade that follows the beach around to the marina, pop into the Lonja, to see the fish auction which is held everyday from Monday to Friday at 10am. Continue your walk past the northern beach which is called Plata del Portet, then head up into the streets which lead to the Cap d’Or with its watchtower.
•Spend the morning at the busy market on a Friday, then discover the inland towns like Teulada, the administrative capital of Moraira which is well known for cultivating the Muscatel grape that is used mainly to produce wine or Gata de Gorgos famous for its antique and wicker shops.
