History of Rincon de la Victoria
Settlement of the Rincon de la Victoria area dates from prehistoric times. Late Palaeolithic (35,000-10,000 BC) sites have been discovered from which a collection of tools and Stone Age art have been extracted. The remains of a Roman settlement and a 3rd century Roman fortress are also located in the area. During the 12th century, under Arab occupation, the town was known as Bezmiliana. The stronghold of the Castle of Bezmiliana, of great strategic importance, was built at this time and its remains can be seen at Castellón.
Rincon de la Victoria was once an important fishing village but now most of the trade comes from tourism.
