We recommend doing some sightseeing in Villajoyosa. Walk around the streets with colourful, painted houses, wander though the walled old town, visit the Gothic and Renaissance-style Church of the Assumption, the ruins of the castle, and the Allon Roman thermal baths. You can also strong along the town´s various charming beaches or do something hiking around the Mallardite Sanctuary.
Not to be missed is a visit to the Sailing Club, walk around it and take a look for the fish auction, Lonja de Villajoyosa, in one of the most traditional fishing port in the Valencian Community.
Villajoyosa has a variety of museums to satisfy the curiosity of any visitor, such as the Barbera dels Aragones House Museum, the Vilamuseu, which houses a large archaeological, ethnographic and paleontological collection, and the Chocolate Museum (offering guided visits), a major attraction owing to the town´s chocolate-making tradiction which dates back to the 17yh and 18th centuries.
Declared a Festival of International Tourism Interest, the Town´s Moors and Christians festival attracts thousands of tourists to Villajoyosa each year from24 to 31 July. Visitors can enjoy the festive atmosphere, admire the colourful, unique parades and watch the re-enactment of the Desembarc (disembarkment) of the Moors on the beach, for which the town is famous.
