Sax (Spanish pronunciation: ['saks], locally: ['sas]. Catalan: Saix ['saj?]) is a municipality in the comarca of Alt Vinalopó, province of Alicante, Valencian Community.

History

There are archaeological findings in the area dating to the Bronze Age, as well as an Iberian necropolis and remains of Roman villas.

In the later stages of the Reconquista Sax was at the focus of tensions between Castile and Aragon, since James I of Aragon conquered it from the Moors though it should have been reserved to Castile under the treaties of Tudilén and Cazorla.

Main sights

  • Castle, one of three main fortress in the comarca together with those clnerthera of Villena and Biar. The base of one of the towers is perhaps Roman, while the other is of Moorish origin (10th-12th century)
  • Church of the Assumption (16th century)
