Pego - Region of Valencia
Sitting in the heart of Marina Alta, Pego is full of beautiful natural landscapes, charming people and an interesting culture. This destination is both one you won’t want to leave, and one you will always want to go back to.
Surrounded by mountains, Pego sits in the iconic Parque Natural de la Marjal Pego-Oliva: a protected natural space with a landscape of dunes, rice fields and rivers, like the Bullent or the Racons Rivers. Adding to its allure, Pego is within walking distance of the fine, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters of Oliva and Dénia.
What to do in Pego
To really get to know Pego, go into its Old Town and walk down its orthogonal narrow streets. Back in time, Pego was surrounded by a wall that was built by Christians at the end of the 13th century. You can still see the remains of that wall, which includes one of three major entrances that was used in the Middle Ages.
The Medieval character of Pego can also be seen in many of its present-day buildings. We recommend visiting the Casa de la Cultura (it houses the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo and Museo Etnológico), the 18th-century Capilla de l’Ecce-Homo, the hermitages of Sant Miquel i Sant Josep and the iconic Plaza del Ayuntamiento to see it firsthand.
After touring Pego and its surroundings, we know you’ll fall in love with the destination. Head to Pego, visit Tourist Info Pego i Les Valls and check out all it has to offer.
