Vlogs

Come to a place where every street is steeped in history and where a natural park is teeming with bird species. It’s time to start planning your getaway.


Located in La Marina Alta in the province of Alicante, Pego is a lovely municipality whose medieval layout is still intact. It makes a great destination for lovers of cultural tourism as well as birders and hikers: La Marjal de Pego-Oliva Natural Park will envelop you in beautiful scenery whose biodiversity will take you aback. Fancy coming with us to lap up all of the destination’s secrets?

What to do in Pego

A great place to start your exploration of the municipality is the historic centre where you can walk streets whose layout hasn't changed since medieval times. Look carefully and you can gain an insight into what Pego’s Walls would have once looked like: sections of the wall are still visible, integrated into the buildings of some central streets. You will also come across an old gate, which was once part of this Muslim fortification. 

Another sight for your itinerary is La Asunción de Nuestra Señora Parish Church, a Renaissance and Baroque place of worship built between the 16th and 17th centuries. El Ecce-Homo Church or Chapel is another must-visit. This 18th-century Baroque temple is beautifully decorated and home to the statue of the patron saint of Pego. 

Conclude your tour of the centre by visiting San José Chapel and San Miguel Arcángel Chapel, before stopping off to learn about the history of the town at Pego’s Ethnological Museum and the Contemporary Art Museum, which has a fascinating contemporary art collection.

There are plenty of things to do in Pego outside the centre. We’d recommend taking a walk around the ruins of Ambra Castle, which is a joy to photograph, or exploring San Antonio Abad Chapel. And, of course, make sure you leave ample time to admire the scenery of La Marjal de Pego-Oliva Natural Park whose rice fields and wetlands are teeming with incredible biodiversity. This is one of the most abundant nature areas in the Mediterranean. So what are you waiting for? Come and fall in love with Pego.
