Protecting the Cova Tallada


THE COUNCILLOR for the Environment of Javea, Doris Courcelles and the Municipal Archaeologist, Joaquim Bolufer met last Friday at the Cova Tallada – a visit organised by the new Director of the Montgo Natural Park to consider how to regulate the effects of tourism and overcrowding at the beauty spot.

Also present at the meeting were representatives of the City of Denia, firemen, the Forest Agents and tourist company officials.

Discussed was the application of protectionist measures for the Cova Tallada – a marine cavity under the cliffs of Cap de Sant Antoni, that has, in recent years, suffered great human pressure, especially during the summer.

La Cova Tallada forms part of the municipal catalogue of protected areas as a Property of Local Relevance of Javea and is currently under study by the Generalitat to see if it is declared a Property of Cultural Interest.
