Gata de Gorgos is a quiet village of whitewashed houses, with a strong Mediterranean atmosphere. It has a long tradition of basket-making and the manufacture of other wicker and straw products, making Gata well-known both within Spain and internationally. Other traditional crafts include ´El Bolillo´, guitar-making and ceramics.
It is ideally located in the Marina Alta, with easy access to the beaches of Denia, Jávea, Benitatxel and Moraira, and to inland villages such as Benidoleig, Benissa, Jalón, Pedreguer, la Vall de Laguar, la Vall de la Gallinera and la Vall de Ebo. There are good train connections to Denia, Benidorm, Calpe, Altea and Alicante.
The Gorgos River cuts through the village. Take a walk in the Font del Riu gardens, or visit the Mata i Murta fountain.
Gata´s principal festivities include the San Miguel fiesta, at the end of September which hosts a Craft Fair with lots of colourful stalls. At the Barrio de la Font del Riu fiesta which honours Saint Joan, the area around Calle Lepanto is full of street parties, open-air picnics and bull-runs. Festivities to commemorate the Santísimo Christo del Calvario culminate on 6th August with the ´Día Grande´ celebration. During the preceding week the festivities include bull-runs, street parties, firework displays, floral offerings, parades and other traditional activities.
