Castles, Raisins and Paella Denia, Spain

I just love trips where Im never bored. I mean, dont you just hate to go
to a destination where theres really only one attraction? Only one type of
architecture? One thing the place is known for? Thats why I love Denia,
Spain, which sits on the Mediterranean Sea. Its so out of the ordinary.
Denia cant help but be out of the ordinary. Again, it does sit on the
Mediterranean. And, take into account the many cultures that have dominated
Denia in its history: the Roman, Greeks, Arabs, Moors. They all have had an
impact on the culture, architecture and food of the region.

After taking in the beauty of the Mediterranean, its good to begin your trip
to Denia with a visit to the hill-top castle which dominates over the city. The
castle was once an Arab fortress, and now houses The Archaeological Museum,
which has a great number of remains of all the different cultures which has
invaded this area.

Then head on over to the Ethnological Museum on Cavallers Street for an
exhibit on raisins. Thats right, raisins. Denia was once the premier raisin
producer in the region. Though tourism now dominates Denia, raisins are
still grown there and are quite the local delicacy.

Okay, now that you have gotten acquainted with Denias culture and raisins,
its time for a little fun in the sun. If youre a scuba-diving enthusiast, you must
head south to a coastal area call Les Rotes, which is known for excellent scuba
diving and fishing.

If youre like me and you want to just relax in the sun, there are sandy beaches
north of town. Els Palmars and Las Marinas are two wonderful beaches where
the not-so-deep waters appeal to families with children (or, people who are just
chicken of deep water, like me).

After a day of sunning, scuba diving and visiting museums, its time to eat. And
when I think of Denia and food I think Paella, a rice dish with fish, meat and vegetables.
Rice is very common in Denia kitchens. There are actually over 200 ways that Denia
cooks have found to prepare rice. Someday I plan to try all 200 variations.
So, for something very much out of the ordinary, plan a trip to Denia, Spain.
