FIFTY students are working within the VII archaeological excavations of the medieval village of Ifac in Calpe.
“The great importance of the site covers a period of 1000 years. The church was standing in the eighteenth century, and we are slowly discovering Calpe history, ” said Manuel Cabrera, the town’s mayor.
One point of interest in this campaign has been the church of Our Lady of the Angels, where in recent weeks from the rubble of a 1950’s hotel has been excavated a 14th century church, covering 30 metres. The work to clear debris from the church were made by the Directorate General of Coasts at the request of Calpe.
With further excavation of the site it has been estimated that this community comprised around 600 people.
