Serene Lifestyle with a Charming Historical Appeal in Calpe Pueblo
Calpe Pueblo is an idyllic area situated in the old historic town of Calpe on the Costa Blanca. Originally built with walls to defend its people from North African pirates, the village has retained its historic charm with its narrow, cobbled streets, historic landmarks, and magnificent coastal scenery. Living in old town Calpe can be best characterized by its quiet antiquity combined with the conveniences of modern living.
Within the neighbourhood, restaurants, bars, shops, and offices mesh perfectly well with the historic architecture of the village within a backdrop of the panoramic Mediterranean Sea. A walk on its colourful stairs (30 Carrer de Pedro García Ortiz) bridges Old Town Calpe with its more modern neighbouring areas. Murals and mosaics decorate the walls of the streets and engage the people to meander through the alleyways and corners.
In Calle Santisimo Cristo street, the fortified walls of Torreo de la Peca houses the Museo de la Coleccionismo. Within the street of Santisimo Cristo, one will also find the Museo de Historia y Arqueologia which contains a curated collection of Calpe’s history dating back to the Bronze Age.
