Our history

The restaurant La Pepica held in 1998, the centenary of its founding.

It was created by Francisco Balaguer Aranda marriage son of a guard barriers of Sagunto (Valencia) and Josefa Marqués Sanchís.. The first, Francisco Balaguer began working on the port of Valencia, and she as a clerk in a bar that served sandwiches to locals and visitors.

After marriage, very young, installed his own eatery in the harbor, so far they have to withdraw from the port area, and outside, continue to serve the same clients snacks and fresh beverages in a carriage.

It was the the Alfonso XIII who gave Francisco Balaguer and 44 more to install granting the beachside their wooden barracks service bathers. Prior to receiving the final concession and build, the places are raffled every year by the “Casa del Pueblo” (people’s house, the official entity who manage the licenses around 100 years ago). It was mounted in June and withdrew in September.

In 1923, the weather was still very summery atmosphere and did not withdraw hemselves but then a storm in October swept all installed barracks. The following year it was built in adjusting to draw this year, where it now stands.

Balaguer-Marquis marriage had eight children, the husband Francisco Balaguer died in 1937 at age 76 and his wife Josefa 1941 at age 66.

Currently at the restaurant La Pepica, the grandchildren of the founders continue to serve with love to friends and customers with the good work they were taught their ancestors.
