This small village of less than 800 inhabitants is part of the municipality of Denia, on the southern slopes of the Montgó.

The landscape is marked by the proximity to the Natural Park of Montgó, not in vain, Jesús Pobre is the starting point of many hiking routes of different levels and styles. We can also observe its picturesque landscape full of farmland, with the typical country houses with large plots of land. 
Traditionally they were dry farming fields, vineyards (very famous the Denia sultana that was really cultivated in Jesús Pobre), almond trees, olive groves, etc.... If you pass through Jesús Pobre we recommend you to taste the famous muscatel grape.
