ALTEA

The name of Altea could come from the Greek Althaia, which means "I cure", or from the Arabic word aṭṭaláya that gives place in Valencian to the word Talaia. Traces have been found in the village of Iberians and Romans.

 

During the last phase of Muslim rule, Altea belonged to the taifa of Denia. It was conquered in 1244 by Jaime I of Aragon.

 

In 1705 the Anglo-Dutch squadron that supported the Archduke Charles of Austria, headed by the Valencian general Juan Bautista Basset, landed in the bay of Altea during the War of Succession, which favored the later takeover by the Austrocists of Denia and Valencia. The eighteenth century marked an agricultural, fishing, commercial and demographic boom, ending the century with 5,000 inhabitants.

 

During the nineteenth century the official and commercial life moved to the urban center near the sea.

The village of Altea is located on a promontory near the mouth of the river Algar, in the north of the province of Alacant. But there is another town called Altea la Vella which still occupies the site of the old town, just three kilometers from the town center. Its origin dates back to the first millennium BC., But Roman and Muslim remains have also been found. The different civilizations still show their imprint in many corners of the municipality where the orchards, ditches, terraces of olive and almond trees maintain this millennial landscape.

 

After the fall of the Roman Empire and the Muslim and Berber colonization of the Algar and Guadalest valleys, the whole territory was changed, but with the Catalan conquest in the thirteenth century and the decree of expulsion of the Muslims of 1248, The population will gradually decline over the next few centuries. Nevertheless a medieval project of repopulation without much success denominated Bellaguarda was developed, the rest of which have been surrounded by the urban nucleus of Altea. In the sixteenth century with the term practically deserted the construction of a fortified town is projected, that will fix its characteristic physiognomy.
