The Provincial Government of Alicante, led by Alicante Archaeology Museum (MARQ), has been undertaking the IFACH Archaeological Project since 2005. This work has been carried out in close association with Calpe Town Council and the Valencian Region’s Department of the Environment, Water, Urbanism and Housing.
The project aims to uncover the remains of the medieval settlement of Ifach, which was founded on the sides of the Peñón at the end of the 13th century. This settlement was only occupied for a century, after which it was destroyed and abandoned and the new town of Calpe was created. So far this is the only new-founded Christian medieval settlement (without any earlier occupation) in the Valencian Region which is being studied within an archaeological research framework. This project is financed by the Alicante Provincial Government and is part of MARQ’s annual Programme of Excavations and Surveys, which undertakes archaeological investigations throughout the Alicante Province.
