LOCATION One of the most famous Carnivals on the Costa Blanca North is the one held in Pego during the month of February. This charming and traditional Spanish town throws itself wholeheartedly into the holiday and the celebrations even start a week beforehand with the “Baixada del RiuBullent”, a fun activity which involves a race along the river in motorless boats made by the participants themselves… in fancy dress!
The Pego-Oliva marshes on the edge of Pego town produce much of the special Bomba rice in paellas and other traditional rice dishes.
Pego is ideally located 100 km from Alicante and 90km from Valencia. Famous for its olive groves, orange plantations and rice fields, this beautiful medieval town has its origins in the 13th Century, and is today a centre for historical exploration, mountaineering, walking and wildlife. The town square in Pego offers traditional bars and restaurants, supermarkets, a good variety of small shops, banks and local transport links. Pego is a little hidden gem sandwiched between orange groves, marshes and nine mountain ranges. Only a short drive away to the cosmopolitan city of Denia and an abundance of nearby beaches stretching along the coast from Denia to Oliva onto Gandia and close to the Denia La Sella Golf Resort and the Oliva Nova Beach and Golf Resort. Between Oliva´s coastline and Pego town you will find the Marjal, a natural park which is home to numerous endangered species, even ospreys and eagles can be seen circling the airspace above. You can enjoy an immense tranquillity and feel totally at one with nature whilst exploring the green valleys and mountains via the network of walkers´ routes to be found in the area. Pego has traditionally been associated with growing rice, though its proximity to Valencia has also encouraged the growing of citrus fruits. No visit is complete without seeing the Ambra castle, with its spectacular view of the town, the orange groves and the rice fields. Pego´s most popular monument is the Church of the Assumption with its breath-taking architecture of the 17th century and a bell tower topped with small canons.
