Discover the Castle of Dénia

The Castle of Dénia is the emblem of the city and its everlasting watchman. From the top you can see the city in all its splendour and between the walls you can read centuries of history engraved in each of the stones that make them up. Discovering the Castle is a visit that aims to bring us closer to this long history, revealed in each of the spaces inside the fortress. The tour begins in the lower part of the enclosure to ascend and, in turn, discover the history that it treasures. The visit culminates in the Archaeological Museum, located in the highest part, from where centuries of history can be seen.

The World of Toys in Dénia

Trucks, dolls, trailers, ships, trains… There was a time in the history of the last century when the economy revolved around a varied production of wooden toys. That world, now gone, is represented in the Toy Museum, where girls and boys can learn about the types of past toys and adults get a first-hand look at the characteristics of an industry that has met the challenge of economic reconversion. The visit aims to bring the public closer to the modes of production and the varied and rich typology of the toy industry.

The visit will bring the visitor closer to the evolution of the dimensions and typologies of some toys, in sharp contrast with the current ones.

Denia Ethnological Museum. Between randas and raisins

The 19th century was a moment of splendor for Dénia that left its mark on the transformation of the urban physiognomy and the agricultural landscape. The raisin monoculture became the axis of the local economy, offering as a result an advanced and modern city. In the Ethnological Museum of Dénia we will be able to approach the two sides of the coin: how the bourgeoisie lived between randas and modernity and what life was like and agricultural production that, between raisins and scaldaes, led to the social and economic rise of the city. In addition, it will affect the continent, since the building, in the historic heart of the city, is a representative example of the buildings of this bourgeoisie.
