Ontinyent has a parish church remarkable for its lofty square tower, and a palace of the dukes of Almodòver. By 1910 there was a large modern suburb outside the old town, which was a walled city; some vestiges of the ramparts still remain. In 1910 linen and woolen cloth, paper, brandy, furniture and earthenware were manufactured; and there was some trade in cereals, wine, almonds and olive oil.[2]
