The existence of the literary routes of Maria Ibars, one that takes place through places on the Montgó, with the title In the shadow of the Montgó, and the one that takes place along the Paseo de Les Rotes, with the title by the sea, has been key to the selection of Dénia as the venue to develop the meeting.
