Busot itself is about 24 kilometres from Alicante and holds a Moors and Christians fiesta on the weekend after Easter.

The village was for many centuries annexed to Alicante and variously came under the Kingdoms of Castile and Valencia, during the reign of the Catholic Kings it came under the control of Alfonso Martínez de Vera, it finally gained its independence from Alicante in 1773.
