Uncover the delights of Xativa, a town steeped in fascinating historical and architectural wealth.
Lying just 43.5 miles (70 kms) from Valencia, this day trip is the perfect way to get out and explore Valencia’s surrounds and culture.
Known as the home of the famous Borgia family, two of which would become Popes during the XV century.
Xativa is an enchanting city with an eclectic collection of historical tales and prominent architecture spanning various centuries.
Be transported back in time as you wander through the collection of palaces, medieval houses and churches. Visit the famous Collegiate Basillica, built on the former site of a medieval mosque.
Take the bus to the Xativa’s medieval castle, perched on a hill overlooking the town. Constructed in Moorish times, the castle’s walls, reminiscent of the Great Wall of China, are visible from much of the town and remind us of the power reined over centuries from this strategically placed fort on the ancient road from Rome to Cartagena.
To top it all off, finish your day perfectly with a typical meal in a local restaurant before retuning to Valencia.
