Want to do something a little different? Wander down the A L’ombra de les Caves trail and visit different wine cellars that were formerly used to make ice. The Cava Gran winery is a great place to see original cellars like those, the architecture of which stems from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
Agres is also filled with different hiking trails that are great for families, like those that go through Sierra de Mariola Natural Park—which is considered a “green lung” in the Region of Valencia. For a real treat, try the Fonts d'Agres urban trail.
