The castle is one of its symbols, and offers spectacular views over part of the city, the coastline and the Monte de Montgó nature reserve. It houses the Archaeological Museum. Beside the castle you can visit the Les Roques quarter, whose streets offer a fine example of the simple white Mediterranean architecture. Another suggestion is to stroll around the fishing quarter, where you'll find a hive of activity in the streets and in the marina. And if you'd like a taste of the maritime way of life, the best idea is to visit the Lonja fishmarket where you can buy fresh fish from Monday to Friday after 5 pm. You'll find all the other interesting monuments in the historic centre. Highlights include the church of La Asunción and the Town Hall, which has on its façade two headstones from the ancient temple of Diana. Nature and beaches A good way to explore the Monte de Montgó nature reserve is by taking one of its numerous footpaths. There are beaches with broad stretches of sand like Les Marines, L'Almadrava, Els Molins and Les Bovetes, and also peaceful rocky coves like Las Rotas. Gastronomy Rice dishes such as paella, 'arroz a banda' (with cuttlefish) and rice with anchovies and spinach, and seafood dishes like 'fideuà', monkfish 'all i pebre' and 'llandeta' are all excellent recommendations to order in Denia.
