Locality: ELS POBLETS
Avda. Jaime I, 1
Els Poblets results from the combination of two small villages Setla-Mirarrosa and Miraflor, which in 1971 became Miraflor.The village was originally a Moorish farmstead belonging first to the Marquis of Dénia and then to the Condado de Parcent. The villages were traditionally linked to El Verger and, until very recently, were still part of its parish. When combined these are small villages which barely exceed one thousand inhabitants; their major attraction lies in the surrounding green landscape dotted with orange groves and a small area of coast where you can go underwater fishing. The area includes several residential housing estates where expatriate residents live all year round.
Sea urchins, coques (pizza-like pastries), tomacat and botifarres de seva (tomato and Catalan sausage) and arrós amb llegum (rice with vegetables).
Church of Miraflor and 14th-century Mirarrosa tower.
