STUDIES BEGIN ON RESTRICTING ACCESS TO COVA TALLADA
Overcrowding has become a problem at the ancient quarry site

Monday 27th March 2017

JAVEA NEWS | Heritage - Cova Tallada

Studies have begun on how to reduce overcrowding at Cova Tallada, the popular cave on the northern flanks of Cabo San Antonio from which stone was once extracted to build the church of San Bartolomé, the windmills as well as the castle at Dénia.

Councillor Doris Courcelles (Environment) and municipal archaeologist Joaquim Bolufer visited the cave as part of an excursion organised by the new director of the Parque Natural de Montgó to start studies on how to regulate visits and reduce overcrowding during the peak summer months. They were accompanied by representatives from the Ayuntamiento de Dénia, the fire service, park rangers as well as active tourism companies.

The Ayuntamiento de Xàbia has been keen to become totally involved in the studies to apply measures to protect the sea cave that has suffered from the impact of huge crowds in recent years, especially during the summer months.

Cova Tallada has long been considered one of the most spectacular places to visit in the province of Alicante and has attracted curious visitors for centuries, not least the Spanish King Felipe III who made several trips at the end of the 16th century. It now forms part of Xàbia's municipal catalogue of protected area as 'Bien de Relevancia Local' ('Heritage of Local Relevance') and is currently being considered by the Generalitat Valenciana to be declared 'Bien de Interés Cultural (BIC)' ('Heritage of Cultural Interest') due to its status as an archaeological site and old stone quarry.


Primera reunión para estudiar cómo evitar la masificación en la Cova Tallada

La concejala de Medio Ambiente de Xàbia, Doris Courcelles y el arqueólogo municipal, Joaquim Bolufer, han participado en una visita a la Cova Tallada organizada por el nuevo director del Parque Natural del Montgó para empezar a plantear cómo regular las visitas y evitar su masificación en verano. En esta inspección también han estado representantes del Ayuntamiento de Dénia, de bomberos, de los Agentes forestales e incluso de empresas de turismo activo.

Con esta primera toma de contacto, Xàbia muestra su total implicación en la aplicación de medidas proteccionistas en esta cavidad marina bajo los acantilados del Cap de Sant Antoni que en los últimos años sufre una gran presión humana, sobre todo durante el verano.

La Cova Tallada forma parte del catálogo municipal de espacios protegidos como Bien de Relevancia Local de Xàbia y actualmente está en fase de estudio por parte de la Generalitat para ver si es declarada Bien de Interés Cultural por condición de yacimiento arqueológico y antigua cantera de piedra.
