Torremanzanas (Spanish: [ˌtoremanˈθanas]) or La Torre de les Maçanes (Valencian: [la ˈtore ðe lez maˈsanes]) is a municipality in the comarca of Alacantí in the Valencian Community, Spain. It owes its name to an ancient Almohad fortification located in the upper part of the town (valencian "Torre", english "Tower") and evokes a tradition of hospitality since "Maçanes" means inns.[1]
