Three Hill Forts in Eastern Spain

  • W. J. Hemp

The mountain known as Mongó is an isolated mass of limestone, rising to a height of over 2500 feet above the level plains which border the sea in the neighbourhood of Denia in the ancient territory of the Contestani and the modern province of Alicante (pl. I). Standing free, as it does, from the main mass of mountains, it is the most conspicuous landmark on the promontory which stretches eastwards towards the Balearic Islands. The views from its summit cover a wonderful expanse of country; south and westwards to the mountains, northwest across miles of orange groves to the coast leading to Valencia and beyond (pl. 6), while eastwards the Isle of Ibiza is clearly visible 70 miles away.
