Crevillente is found near the El Hondo nature reserve nestling below the mountain range of the same name and easily accessed via the N340 motorway or AP-7 toll road.
It produces almonds, fruit and olives although it is also well know for making Spanish Carpets, traditionally using esparto grass. To this day as you approach Crevillente you will find many warehouses, factories and shops, manufacturing and selling these rugs. It’s a busy, modern industrial town with some 27,000 inhabitants, although it has its old quarters with winding narrow streets and old Moorish buildings. These areas reflect the history of the town and it’s origins before the Christians conquered the Moors.
Crevillente is a walker or birdwatchers’ paradise. With the Honda Natural Park and the varied landscape, the area attracts both migratory birds and the tourists alike. This is some of the best countryside Alicante has to offer, and as well as all the fauna and Mediterranean plant life, flocks of flamingos and rare birds can be seen in their natural environment.
Crevillente has a number of parks in the town and well-maintained tree lined avenues making it a pleasant place to stroll around. There are also churches to see and museums of both arts and science that has played a large part in Crevillente’s history.
