Rich history of the region
Everyone will find something for themselves in Gandia. The region's rich history and amazing landscapes make it unique. It is a popular destination for those who love sandy beaches, mountain hiking and extreme sports. The beginnings of settlement in the area date back to the Paleolithic era. In 1252, during the reign of King James I, it was conquered by Christians who took over the local lands from Muslim rule. This moment became a turning point in the development of Gandia, ushering in the city's expansion in trade, agriculture, crafts and demography. Later, the city was granted the status of a dutchy and was transformed into a small prestigious medieval court, following the model of the Italian Renaissance, which featured well-known figures of the time such as Ausias March, Joanot Martorell and Roís de Corella.
