DENIA’s Museums department is organising free conducted tours each month to two local archaeological sites between now and December.
Weekend outings will visit Cova Catxupa, a Neolithic shelter with rock paintings that are 6,000 years old, and Alt de Benimaquia, a Sixth Century BC fortified Iberian settlement with one of Europe’s oldest wineries.
The first visits took place last weekend but there will be further visits to the Cova Catxupa on August 7, September 4, October 17, November 13 and December 5.
Visits to Alt de Benimaquia are arranged for August 8, September 5, October 16, November 14 and December 4.
The tours all begin at 10.30am.
To reserve a place, call 96 642 02 60 (Museo Etnologico), Tuesday to Saturday from 10.30am to 1pm and between 4pm and 7pm.
and the meeting point for Cova Catxupa is Kilometre 187.5 on the N-332 main road at Venta de Parra.
The Benimaquia party meets at La Xara’s southern access on the Pedreguer road.
