Tabarca is the only inhabited island in the Comunitat Valenciana and is located in front of the city of Alicante, eleven nautical miles away and close to the cape of Santa Pola. In reality, rather than an island, it is a small archipelago, made up, in addition to Tabarca, of the islets La Cantera, La Galera and La Nao. It is approximately 1,800 metres long and has a maximum width of about 400 metres.
Its coasts were once a refuge for Barbary pirates. In the 18th century, Charles III ordered it to be fortified and a village to be built there to house several families of fishermen from Genoa who were held captive in the Tunisian city of Tabarka. The walls surrounding the town centre have been declared a Historic-Artistic Site and an Asset of Cultural Interest.
