At first glance the town of Crevillente simply appears to be a modern industrial town which you might easily pass by however it does have a long and fascinating history and was in fact occupied even before the arrival of the Romans in Spain some 2,000 years ago.

Early settlements were established by the Iberians, and these were extended somewhat when the Romans arrived, though the town did not really develop until the Moorish occupation when agricultural methods enabled the area to be cultivated.

During the 18th century a carpet industry emerged turning into a significant earner for the town, early carpets were made from esparto grass and were mostly exported.
