Pedreguer Tourist Information
Pedreguer is a typical Spanish market town located at the foot of the Muntanya Gran. The village is surrounded by abundant agricultural farming land on which fruits and vegetables are grown. The village also specializes in the manufacturing of bags, hats and leather goods. This is an original village – many of the façades of the houses are painted
in vivid colours, which give the village a lively appearance. Around the main square we can see some of the most beautiful 19th Century facades as well as “els Porxes”: the market square is covered with Arabic tiles and constructed with cast-iron pillars and wooden beams.
Pedregeur offers visitors the chance to take a walk through the town centre and discover beautiful ancient buildings such as the parish church of Santa Cruz (16th century), inside is the Grenzig organ, made recently by the German master Gerhard Grenzig. Outside the town centre there is the Sant Blai chapel, from which we can see the Segaria mountain range, the Montgo Nature Park and La Sella with the five star Marriott Hotel.
Pedreguer is close to the beaches of Javea and Denia yet it is away from the maddening crowds and so it makes for a good holiday location if you want to enjoy the northern Costa Blanca. Pedreguer is surrounded by orange groves and vineyards and a trip inland to the Jalon Valley or Orba Valley is highly recommended.
For those of you who like to shop Pedreguer has something to offer everyone. Those who like a bargain can make their way to the car boot sale or Rastro market held every Sunday on the nearby inducstrial estate.
