Pedreguer is a small town with a population of about 7000, that is found surrounded by orange groves and vineyards, close to Denia. It has good transport links, with the A-7 motorway nearby meaning Alicante Airport and Valencia alike, can be reached in an hour. This also means the busy resorts and beaches of Javea and Denia can also be reached quickly, but the town itself is far enough away to avoid the crowds of tourists in the summer.
Pedreguer can be found at the mouth of the beautiful Orba Valley and is a fairly typical Spanish market town, except many of the building fronts are painted in bright, vivid colours in the modernista style. The town is an agricultural one and is surrounded by large areas of fruit and vegtable fields. However, leather goods, bags and hats also play an important part in the towns economy. Pedreguer has a weekly market, where you can buy many of these goods and there is a great mix of bars, restaurants and shops including one or two British run places.
There is some interesting architecture on show, including the church of Santa Cruz and San Blas. Throughout the town you will see old Arabic tiles, wooden beams, arches and cast iron; a pointer to Pedreguer’s history.
