With a population of less than 1500 people, Alcalalí is one of the smaller pueblos that belong to the Valle de Pop or Jalon Valley. It covers an area of 14.4 square kilometres. The town itself is steeped in history and is a joy to amble around. Its narrow streets and Moorish architecture show signs of the agricultural past of the pueblo. The surrounding countryside is a patchwork of agricultural land which surrounds the river running through it.
