About Jesus Pobre

Jesus Pobre lies within the administrative boundaries of Denia, in the verdant valley to the South of Montgó. It is close to the towns of Denia, Pedreguer, Gata and Javea and yet is quiet and unspoilt.

It gained the right to have its own council, with Mayor, in May 1999.

Jesus Pobre, with about 600 inhabitants, conserves the characteristics of a small village, with its friendliness and tranquility yet it is less than 10 kms from the beaches and the bustling life of Denia. The northern landscape is dominated by Montgo Mountain (a National Park). On its summit (753 metres) is a cross dedicated to Jesus Pobre.

The southern aspect is of a quiet valley spreading towards the sea, with orange trees, almonds and olives. Farmhouses, often beautifully restored, dot the landscape. Drystone walls remind one of the Pennines. The three stone windmills are midway between Gata and Jesus Pobre. They were constructed in the XVIII century to grind the cereals grown in the area.

The festive calendar is very diverse, beginning in January with the arrival of the Three Kings, the celebration of Santo Antonio Abbot, the wine festival and the main festival lasting 10 days (!) with a varied program of street parties, bull running and live music. 9 of October (the day of the Valencians) has a wonderful street party and music in the evening.

Food plays an important part in the life of Jesus Pobre. The bars/restaurants (6 at the last count) all provide tapas and meals. One can eat an authentic paella whilst soaking up village life. There is one excellent hostal – a great base whilst searching for your Dream Home. We feel sure you will find it in the delightful Jesus Pobre!
