Teulada, Costa Blanca, Spain
Teulada is a small coastal town on Spains Costa Blanca, located 3 km north from Junction 63 of the A7 E-15 toll motorway on the N-332 coast road.It borders the municipalities of Benisa, Benitachell, Denia, Gata de Gorgos and Javea. It is the older part of the Teulada Moraira municipality that was created after its once coastal hamlet of Moraira threatened to break away after tourist development made it the greater part in the 1990s.
Tetting it apart from its coastal neighbours of Calpe and further south, Benidorm, the town council passed laws limiting the height of buildings and protecting the natural pines that cover the sides of the valley leading to the costal part of the municipality, Moraira.
The economy of Teulada is dominated by the tourism industry and fuelled by the construction industry which is forever expanding the community size. The influence of the European expatriate community of predominantly English, German and Dutch residents has grown to the extent that in 1999 a political party of predominantly non Spanish residents, The Moraira Party, won control of the town hall in local elections. Since this time there has been a progressive investment policy in local facilities especially in the coastal area of Moraira.
The earliest signs of a settlement date back to the Upper Paleolithic Period (15-20,000 BC) with remains discovered in a cave on the headland (Cap d’Or). Teulada was founded in 1386 and during the 16th century was fortified due to the constant attacks by Barbary pirates. The lookout tower on the peninsular headland still remains and has been restored. The economy was dominated by agriculture influenced by the period of occupation by the Moors. The walled terraces on the hillsides of the area are still present and allowed for orchards of almonds, vines and citrus fruits to be grown.
