Teulada-Moraira is a municipality in the Valencian Community, located in the northeast of the province of Alicante, in the region of the high sea and has about 15,000 inhabitants.
The town of Teulada is located in the interior, but its municipal has 8 km of coastline on the Costa Blanca. Its port, situated in Moraira, is 6 km from the town centre.
Man inhabited these lands since time immemorial, the vestiges of the upper Palaeolithic and the Neolithic, found in the "Cova de les Cendres", so prove it.
The Mediterranean, a melting pot of cultures and a bridge between civilizations, has marked the physiognomy of this town over the centuries.
The main economic activity of the municipality, agriculture - which still allows us to delight us with the sweet flavor of the Muscat grape and the exquisite liqueur obtained from its elaboration, mistela - is losing its importance in the middle of the s. XX with the arrival of the tourist industry.
