El Portitxol is one of the most important scenic and historical sites in Xàbia. Discoveries made on the island, especially on the seabed of the small bay, led to the first underwater archeological survey of the area and excavation which began in 2019 continuing into 2021.This study has confirmed that this is a rich anchorage area for boats which has been used since the end of prehistoric times until the present day. Evidence of this can be seen in almost 100 anchors and numerous amphorae as well as other archaeological remains which are stored in the Museum of Xàbia.Key researchers on this project: Alexandre Pérez Prefasi, Jordi Blázquez and Joaquim Bolufer, will present the results of these studies to us this evening.
