Looking back is sometimes not easy. It is not always enough to remember, because as time goes by everything can fall into oblivion. It is for this reason that the simple fact of saving and sharing a piece of history can change the social conception of place.
Dénia is a town with a rich past, sometimes underestimated by its own neighbors. But, luckily, the interest of some of them in preserving testimonies makes us understand a little better what we were like and how we got here.
The images that accompany these lines are just an example. They show the enormous differences between the Dénia of 1918 and that of 2021. A landscape, that of the port of Dénia from the castle, with a difference of 103 years. A century that has caused great and visible changes not only in the port facilities, but also in the streets and buildings of the city.
This photo is just one of the more than 2.000 that the Cardona Far family has recently donated to the Municipal Archive, sharing space with other private collections that this repository protects so that it can be as well preserved and documented as possible, and available so that it can be consulted at any time.
