Pinoso Spain - Located in beautiful mountainous countryside on the Alicante / Murcia border, the traditional Spanish town of Pinoso is renowned for the production of fine wines, rock salt and marble. Pinoso has a population of 7,300 (2006 census) and a municipal area of 126 km2.

The history of Pinoso stretches back to the times of the Iberians and the area was later settled by the Romans and then the Moors during the Arab occupation of Spain.

After the Christian re-conquest Pinoso was annexed by Aragon and was joined with the town of Monovar until it gained its independence in 1826. The parish church of Pinoso was ercted in honour of the Apostle Saint Peter in 1743.

In recent years Pinoso has become a popular location for holiday homes and re-location as the nearby Costa Blanca coastline has become significantly over-developed, many have chosen to buy sizeable plots of land with delapidated fincas in need of renovation.

Pinoso holds its market every week on Saturdays and this is a popular place to purchase fresh, locally grown produce.
