El Moncayo
 
 
The Roman trade settlement of Montcaio
 
 
On the beach of El Moncayo (Guardamar del Segura) there was once a settlement from Roman times where trade was conducted in, among other things, salt and fish. The remains that we still see on the beach are from an Islamic ribat from the 10th-11th centuries. The building consisted of, among other things, a prayer cell with a wall facing Mecca.
