Pinoso (Spanish: [piˈnoso]) or El Pinós (Valencian: [eɫ piˈnos]) is a traditional Spanish town which sits located in the mountainous countryside of the Alicante/Murcia border (at some 56 km from Alicante). This traditional town is renowned for the production of fine wines, rock salt and marble. Pinoso has a population of 7,300 and a municipal area of 126 km2. Recently it has experienced a growth in tourism: since the coast line has virtually no more room for new residentials, these are moving inland into the province.
