Cultural Capital of the Mediterranean Cultural Capital of the Mediterranean

Cultural Capital of the Mediterranean

The city of Dénia preserves the legacy of its ancient history, the cradle of people and cultures for more than 2,000 years. As the capital of the Marina Alta region and within its status as a Creative City by UNESCO, Dénia continues to have an important cultural activity today, but the city longs the cultural luster of its taifa of a thousand years ago and aspires to recover its place as a beacon of culture and thought in the Mediterranean.

From October 26 to 28, Dénia Festival de les Humanitats will once again turn the city of Dénia into the epicenter of critical thinking, reflection and the Humanities in the Mediterranean.
