Rural Manilva

In the rural area of Manilva, the vineyard has historically been the main engine of this village, from the 16th century this has always been the cultivation that has given Manilva its fame, highlighting the quality of the wines of this municipality.

The first cultivations dedicated to the vineyard date back to around the year 1515, when they granted the first lands for the vineyards and from then onwards it has done nothing but extend all along the majority of its hills, occupying most of the cultivable lands.

During the 17th and 18th centuries, thanks to the trade of wines and liqueurs with Catalan traders, the trade of the vineyard products grew considerably until the year 1860 when the trade and the cultivation of the vineyard became somewhat residual in comparison to what is was one day.

A maritime and fishing village

Sabinillas has had, for many, many years, the fishing activity as its main source of income, something that in fact remains today and which most of the locals live off. In the rocky areas of Manilva one can catch certain fish and seafood such as sea bass, porgy, sea bream, red bream, spiny lobster, clawed lobster and many more, whilst on the beach one can catch sole fish, dab, roosterfish and clams, amongst others.

For these reasons, Manilva is a marvellous place to taste the best fish and seafood, the freshest and tastiest.
