Cocentaina Alicante Spain

Details

Cocentaina can be found a little further down the N340 from Alcoy, in the Sierra Mariola mountain range.


The town is of Moorish origin and was known as the Muslim capital of the Northern Alicante province, until the Christians ousted them in the 13th Century. The Moors however, returned some 50 years later to seek their revenge by setting fire to the town.


Cocentaina is a medieval town with many examples of Christian, Moorish and Gothic architecture. A visit to the Comtat Palace to see it’s mix of gothic and renaissance styles is a must do, and tourists flock to see this and the fabulous Catholic “La Asuncion” Church next door. Beautiful architecture is a reoccurring theme throughout the entire town and this helps draw in the tourists, who have become an important factor in Cocentaina. The textile industry also plays an import part in the local economy.


There are some great festivals celebrated in Cocentaina and it’s worth tieing in your visit to one of them if possible. The Moors and Christians Festival and All Saints Festival are renowned in the area.
