Do you want to combine history with taste? In the mountains around Benidorm, you can find Museum Winery Restaurant Maserof. This unique setting is located in and around an old Roman villa. The villa is restored in 1972 by the Englishman Peter Pateman who also restarted the vineyard that was there for many centuries. Around the villa is a combination of outbuildings that date back to the Iberian period. The full history of the site and the town of Jalón goes back to Roman times. Numerous finds, tools, and pottery from the Bronze Age have been discovered.
The museum features objects and furniture dating from the eleventh to the nineteenth century. The villa with the name Maserof, is surrounded by almond trees, vines, and olive trees, and is located in a strategic enclave between the Sierra de Bernia, the Tossal del Navarro in Calpe, the Montgo, and the Costera del Ferrer.
