    Isla de Tabarca

    The Island of Tabarca is a spanish island at the Mediterranean sea. At first called Isla de San Pablo or Isla de Santa Pola, as the cape Santa Pola near by, it's actual name comes from the tunisian island of Tabarqah, from where the first setlers came, at the reign of Carlos III (XVIII century). By that time it functioned as a pirate stronghold and a fort remained until today. It is the only inhabited island of the Comunidad Valenciana.
