The Mediterranean, crucible of cultures and a bridge between civilisations, has marked the physiognomy of this municipal area over the centuries. The first economic activity in the municipal area, agriculture, which produces the delightful sweet Roman muscat grapes used to make an exquisite wine, mistela, started to decline in the mid-20th century with the arrival of the tourist industry. El Portet and Platgetes still show signs of the first holidaymakers to come here in the middle of the last century. However, it was at the end of the sixties and the beginning of the seventies when we started to welcome visitors who came to enjoy the wonderful climate, attractive beaches and lovely scenery.
Holidaymakers who come here now will find a town with a rich natural, historical, artistic and monumental heritage. Those looking for culture will find numerous stories, legends and people who offer a friendly welcome.
