Benissa is located on the windy coastal road between Valencia and Alicante, and has a white church similar to the churches painted by Constable.
The Church called the ´Cathedral of the Marina Alta´ was constructed in the ´twenties by pious masons from Benissa who used their own physical strength and monetary contributions to build it.
The medieval centre of Benissa is situated around the ancient prison, which today serves as a Casal de la Joventut (Youth Centre). The municipal district has not been re-developed on a large scale and its 4 km coastline still offers small quiet beaches. These include Fustera -a fine sandy beach with a range of services -, the Cala Pinets and L´ Advocat, which combines rocks and sand.
Finally, the Cala Baladrar is a shingled beach. Marine excursions and water sports such as diving and fishing can all be enjoyed on these beaches.
