Get know to Teulada-Moraira


The Mediterranean, a melting pot of cultures and a bridges between civilizations, which have marked the physiognomy of this town over the centuries.

Man has inhabited these lands since  immemorial time, the vestiges of the upper Palaeolithic and the Neolithic, found in the “Cova de les Cendres”, are proof of this Also the Iberá culture left its mark to see its identity lost due to the romanization of the territory. After the Romans, farmers and agriculturals, and those who probably gave us our name,  the Arabs, who built  the splendid terraced landscapes which you enjoy today and who gave name to many of the places that form part of the municipal area.

In the 13th century, with the arrival of the forces  of Jaume I, came the culture, traditions and customs that form the friendly, cheeful and hospitable character,  of this Mediterranean population.

It is In 1386 when the municipal terminal was created and shortly afterwards, in 1410, we received the visit of a famous historical figure, San Vicente Ferrer, our first famous tourist.

The 15th, 16th and 17TH centuries suffered continuous attacks from the Berber pirates whom bequeathed  what are  possibly the most important pieces of our architectural heritage: the Tower watch of Cap d’Or, the fortified church of Santa Catalina and the room of Jurats i Justicies.

After the construction, in 1744 of the tower known as Castell de Moraira or “De la Mar” ,and under its protection,  a small nucleus of people began to settle, whose main activity was fishing, but not their only one.

In century XIX, the District of the Marina Alta suffers an important economic development due to the export of raisins to the rest of Europe and America. The Almacenes street, reminds us that these buildings were used to store raisins which would be moved by the small boats of fishermen, to the larger ships that anchored in the Bay and that would transport them to their destination.

The main economic activity of the municipality, agriculture – which still allows us to delight in the sweet flavour of the Roman muscatel grape  and  the exquisite liqueur obtained from its elaboration, mistela – starts losing its importance in the middle of the s. XX with the arrival of the tourist industry.

El Portet and Platgetes are witness to the arrival of the first tourists in the middle of this century, but it is at the end of the 1960s and early 70s when we started to welcome all those who want to enjoy the benefits of the climate, beautiful beaches and wonderfull scenery.

Visitors who today come to visit us, will discover a town rich in heritage, not only natural, but historical, artistic and monumental; and will want to delve into the culture, rich in history and legends, of its people who will welcome you with open arms
