With a population made up 50 per cent by foreigners, Alfas del Pi is one of the most international and culturally wealthy towns between Benidorm and Altea.

Languages from across the globe are heard on the streets of Alfas every day, especially Norwegian. Alfas del Pi´s residents include 11 per cent of Norwegians, who cherish the town for its welcoming atmosphere and beautiful sights.

Alongside the Norwegian school Norske Skole Costa Blanca, there are numerous Nordic and international restaurants that reflect the diverse and vibrant culture of Alfas.

The Roman Villa l´Albir, which roots date back to Roman times, is an archaeological site catalogued by the Generalitat Valenciana as an Asset of Local Relevance, showcasing the historical heritage from the 3rd and 7th centuries.

Alfas del Pi became an independent municipality in 1836, and its value of freedom and dignity is still visible today in the old pine tree in the Plaza Mayor.

What used to be Alfas de Popol in the name of the former mayor became Alfas del Pi in 1902, relating to the Arabic meaning of Alfas : fruitful lands, and pi in reference to the Spanish pine tree pino .

It is nature that reigns supreme in Alfas, with breathtaking views of the sea, lush green spaces and local produce such as almonds, which are considered the best in the Valencian Region.
