On June 15, 16 and 17, homage is paid to archeology at a European level. Thinking of this date, from the Museums and Archeology area of ​​the Dénia City Council, activities have been designed to show citizens the archaeological wealth of the city free of charge. With the title 'Islamic Dénia. Castle and medina, XI-XIII centuries', two activities are offered.

On Saturday 17, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the archaeologist Silvia Ruiz will hold an open-air conference that will tour the streets of the historic center (Cavallers, Loreto, Major, ronda de les Muralles, de la Mar and Campo) to explain the urban context of the Islamic medina during the 40th, XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries. On the route you will be able to see the archaeological interventions that show the Andalusian architectural vestiges, such as baths, mosques, warehouses or cemeteries. The capacity of the activity is XNUMX people.

On Sunday 18, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., expert guides will lead a visit to the Dénia Castle. The tour will serve to contextualize and explain the different access doors of the enclosures, the albacar, the walls, the Celler del Palau and the citadel, in a journey from the bottom to the top. The guides will explain the construction techniques of the Islamic period, as well as the later reforms and the architectural works carried out in the Dianense monument. The capacity of the activity is also 40 people.

To enjoy both activities, prior registration is required, which can be done calling on the phone. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 13:00 p.m.

    And the neighbors what?

    Neighbor: who lives next to one. As a noun, the gender is not specified. Another thing is the adjective, where it has to be specified if it is masculine or feminine. With this inclusion, many grammatical errors are made. Greetings and greetings.
    Signed: Kika and Kiko (whatever you like.….)

    • Kiko says:

      It's like saying dentist, there are simply boring people who like to tangle and spin words. There are many words without a gender, because they end in uo it does not apply to it as you say, but, you know that; that to be able to say that, you have to know it, and nowadays what counts is to speak, say and give an opinion without having a clue, even if you are ignorant. We live in a time of being offended, we will get to the point that they will prohibit thinking so that fools don't get offended, greetings kika, and neighbors

        PS: Regarding the content of the news, you could take a guided tour of the basements of the town hall or the eco-park or wherever they store all of Denia's historical collection to which its residents are denied access; Well, as the city council admits, most of the finds are kept in boxes, collecting dust and for worms to eat. In addition to being a storage expense, for that they burn everything, well, give it economic or simply cultural returns, they don't know, apparently. cheers.
