History of Benissa
Many cities along the Costa Blanca were founded during the occupation by the Arabs, and as a result their names are of Arab origin. That is why Beni Isa, which means "son of Isa". Throughout the years, Arab influences have left oriental features in Spanish culture that are still very evident today. In 1248 Jaime I of Aragon subjected Benissa to Christian standards, but as all military resources in the area were fighting against the incursions of Berber pirates (especially during the 15th and 16th centuries), the population of the city continued being mainly Arab. The final expulsion of the Arabs did not take place until 1609, when populations from Catalonia, the Pyrenees and Aragon began to settle in Benissa.
During the late 80s and early 90s the city has undergone a large-scale renovation of its historic center to combat obsolescence and traces of the passage of time. Everything has been renovated, the old houses of the 17th and 18th centuries, the narrow streets, the churches, the Town Hall; as a result the city has been reborn, becoming a radiant city.

Benissa has a strong Catholic tradition that extends throughout the city. The order of the Franciscans produced many followers who dispersed throughout the Spanish geography. The most important piece of this cultural heritage is the Neo-Gothic Cathedral of the Navy. This white church was built in the 1920s, financed by the rich freemasons of Benissa. Its inauguration took place in 1929 during the San Pedro festivities. The Cathedral is 59 m. long, 29 m. of height, and one possesses an imposing altar in honor of the patron saint of the city, Nuestra Purísima Xiqueta. The characteristic light that illuminates the altar is something you should not miss.
A walk through the city will take you to the historic center, with its impressive 15th-century market square, the Lonja de Contratación (the oldest building in Benissa, which also serves as an Ethnographic Museum), in front of the Town Hall (a former hospital for the poor ), and the Torres-Ordu��a Palace (now the cultural center and the local library). Here you will also find the Casal de la Joventut - an old prison that now functions as a center for youth.
On the outskirts of the city between the orchards are the routes that run along the Costa Blanca and that the Ribereros (temporary workers who collected the rice crop) used to reach the coast of Valencia. Today, the symbol of Benissa is a monument in honor of the Ribereros.
There are guided tours many working days.
