Sitting in the midst of the Sierra de Crevillent mountainscape, Crevillent is a pretty town with plenty of history to explore, nature to roam and festivals to experience.


Located in the province of Alicante, Crevillent has plenty of things to see and do. The historic centre lies on the ancient lines of the Islamic settlement offering a maze of narrow and zigzagging streets for you to wander around. As you make your way to the Stations of the Cross you will come across quaint cave-like dwellings, the bell tower of Plaza Vieja church and Nuestra Señora de Belén church. Now we’ve explored the old town, shall we take a look at what else you can see and do in Crevillent? 

What to do in Crevillent

However you enjoy spending your free time, Crevillent has got something for you. History buffs will be pleased to hear there are a number of museums to take a look around. Start at Museo Mariano Benlliure (a museum dedicated to the great sculptor), before making your way to Museo Arqueológico (the archaeological museum) and Museo de las Fiestas (museum of the town’s festivals). And make sure you don’t miss the archaeological remains at Penya Negra, an important site dating all the way back to the Iberian period. 

If you appreciate fine artisanship, delve into the world of Crevillent’s rugs which are famed in the local textile industry. And if you enjoy savouring the finer things in life, make sure you try a coca (a pastry similar to a pizza) topped with anchovies, sardines or vegetables. 

Crevillent also has a lot to offer lovers of the great outdoors. Take a stroll around Els Pontets in search of that perfect shot or roam the Sierra de Crevillent mountainscape where you will be immersed in beautiful scenery and treated to spectacular views. El Hondo is another area of natural beauty defined by its many plant and wildlife species. 

Last but by no means least, Crevillent hosts a number of festivals and festivities around the year which are the perfect excuse to get to know the town when it is at its most vibrant. We recommend Moros y Cristianos, Fiestas de San Antonio and Santísima Trinidad. So what are you waiting for? Make Crevillent the destination for your next getaway.
