Jalon Valley Costa Blanca
Jalon Valley In the spring , what better than a romantic break or a good day out in the Jalon valley?
Jalon Valley exploring
Other highlights in Jalon include the 17th century restored Santa Domingo hermitage near the riverside car park. Next to it is el horno del cal or lime kiln dating from Roman times when lime was used as cement for building, made by heating limestone to over a thousand degrees for three days.
The kiln we can see today was used during the construction of the hermitage.
The 19th century church of Our Lady in the main plaza has the characteristic blue-tiled dome of the area.
If you have time, take in the wine museum and the Saturday rastro.
Visit Alcalali just two or three minutes up the valley from Jalon for its medieval watchtower, which houses a small but informative raisin museum (open on Thursday mornings only).
The tower is capped by an incongruous modern platform but this at least provides an excellent view of the valley and the surrounding mountains.
Take a self-guided walking tour of the village by getting the route in English from the town hall or by downloading it from the website. Its a great way of discovering fascinating details you would otherwise miss.
On your way around, you can still see one of the few original Riu-Raus or drying sheds for raisins, characterised by a long wide covered porch. This style is refl ected in many modern villas.
Raisins were exported all over Europe via the port at Denia. You are spoilt for choice for bars, cafes and restaurants in the valley.
One of my favourites is Merendero at la piscina just outside Parcent for its large buffet starter and wild boar stew not for the faint hearted.

Jalon / Xaló at the Costa Blanca North in Spain.
When you enter the town, fields of olive, almond and citrus trees as well as vines border both sides of the road.
During February and March the almond blossom will be in full bloom.
There are several bodegas where you can sample the local wines.
