History of Altea Costa Blanca

It is indisputable that the current town of Altea constitutes one of the most picturesque and beautiful places on the Alicante coast (the Costa Blanca). The old town is perched on a hill whose summit stands out the emblematic Church of Nuestra Señora del Consuelo, surrounded by traditional white houses and, of course, numerous workshops of all kinds of artists. But, contrary to what many outsiders believe, Altea la Vella (Altea la Vieja) does not correspond to the old walled enclosure of the current Altea, but constitutes another urban nucleus, located about 3.5 kilometers from it and to the north of the Algar river.

The etymological origin of Altea dates back, at least, to the time of Islamic domination (8th-13th centuries), when a settlement called Altāya was established in the place known today as Altea la Vella (or Poblet). However, some sources affirm that such a name could have been the one given by the Greeks to the Algar river, which would have been later adopted by the Romans and, later, by the Muslims. Faced with the two hypotheses, the first seems to gain strength, since the Greek presence on these coasts was very scarce and was limited to trade with the Phoenicians and the Iberians; historically it was speculated that in Dénia or Jávea there could be a Greek settlement, although the lack of evidence ruled out this possibility among the research community.

After the Christian Conquest, in the 13th century, Altāya was renamed Altea, although it remained under Muslim control for some years due to vassalage concessions with King Jaime I and the occasional rebellion led by the tireless al-Azraq. At that time, Bellaguarda —the oldest neighborhood in current Altea— had just been erected by the Christians and had a defensive bastion, of which the tower of the same name was part.

The decrees of conversion of the Muslims to Christianity and, later, of the definitive expulsion of the Moors caused a significant depopulation, the result of which was the complete abandonment of the original Altea (the ancient Altāya; today, Altea la Vella). At the same time, around Bellaguarda a small hamlet had been created protected by the protection of the bastion and, already at the dawn of the 17th century, Carta Puebla was granted to occupy the new location of Altea, on the hill adjacent to Bellaguarda.

Fortunately, the original site (Altea la Vella) began to be populated again, and gradually, from the 18th century and today it constitutes a peaceful district of Altea, located at the foot of the always fascinating Sierra de Bernia, border natural between the regions of the Marina Baixa and the Marina Alta, but that is another story.
