Pinoso or El Pinós rests on the border between the provinces of Alicante and Murcia. This small traditional town is surrounded by the charming Spanish countryside and beautiful sunny homes.
Pinoso has a population of around 7,500 and was previously focussed on agricultural with a thriving footwear industry, it is now attracting the attention of foreign buyers as an ideal location for a holiday home away from the hustle and bustle of the busy coastline resorts but with the convenience of access to Alicante and Murcia Airports. They are 45mins and 1hours drive away respectively, with routes to all the major European airports serviced by most of the popular airlines.
The origins of Pinoso are a mix of various cultures, including the Iberians, Romans (who probably began the vineyards) and Moors. After the re-conquest Pinoso came under control of the Kingdom of Aragon and at this time was just a small group of hamlets, it gained it's independence from Monovar in 1826. The parish church was built in 1743 in honour of Saint Peter the Apostle.
The area around Pinoso is still mostly for agricultural use and grape vines are the most widely grown crop, the local Monastrell variety being one of the most popular and this produces some excellent quality red wines for which the area is renowned. Pinoso is also important for the production of marble and rock salt.
