Pinoso, or as it is also known Pinos is nestled in amongst mountains right on the Murcia/Valencia border at a position 450 meters above sea level, it became independent from Monóvar in 1826 and is a prosperous town primarily active in vine monoculture and the extraction of salt and marble. For people looking for real Spain and true Spanish rural lifestyle this is it. The countryside of its extensive district provides a contrast between the green pine groves of the Sierra del Coto and the white limey soil of vineyards growing the Monastrell grape and produce highly-rated red wines. Rosé, white and Fondillón dessert wines are also produced and form part of the 'denominación de origen' wine area of Alicante. The Bodega Co-operative Wine cellar has a storage capacity of 14,000,000 litres. Pinoso produces and extracts salt, which is then processed and marketed by Torrevieja. The town also extracts marble to be worked by the inhabitants of Novelda. The countryside of its extensive district provides a contrast between the green pine groves of the Sierra del Coto and the white limey soil of the vineyards. Major festivals are celebrated in August and this is a week not to be missed, 1st - 10th, the whole town takes it as an excuse to basically close up and make merry, a fantastic insight into "real Spanish life". In February, the 'Día del Villazgo' fair is held to commemorate its independence as a municipality. Pinoso is only approx 24km from the local Spar town, Fortuna, here you will find the steam rooms and water therapy services, swimming pools, hot springs and massage facilities.

We have quite a lot of personal experience of Pinoso and can say that everyone welcomes visitors from abroad and tries their utmost to help you in whatever it is you are doing, this is just as well as the town is growing more from foreign settlers than natural inhabitant growth. The population is currently quoted as 6645 and the town is situated in the western section of Alicante and is easiest reached from Pinoso, Novelda or Elda; take the road through Monóvar. 56 km from Alicante and its International Airport. Watching this town develop is quite a pleasant pastime. The area is what is often described as true Costa Blanca inland life on the border of Murcia or Costa Calida.
