To travel through the Region of Valencia is to disconnect from everyday life and reconnect with nature. Each and every province and county is filled with places that inspire, villages that breathe peace and quiet and cities that are filled with life. El Comtat county is certainly one of these places, as is one of its villages, Alfafara. 

What to do in Alfafara

Alfafara is a small village in the north of the province of Alicante with just over 400 residents. Here traditions, cuisine and culture are still very much alive and there is beauty bursting from the village’s winding streets, plazas and buildings. A wonderful place to take a stroll, breathe it all in, and maybe even meet some of the welcoming locals. 

Sitting on the foot of Sierra de Mariola, Alfafara has a network of beautiful hiking routes and greenways so you and your family, friends or loved one can dive deep into nature. The pools fuente del Azud and Fuente del Tarragó, El Bolumini cave, “Fontanarets”, Pantanet mill carved out of the rockface, Masía del Pozo necropolis and San Antonio y Nuestra Señora de la Luz chapel are just some of the places where you can just be still and enjoy the history and culture in front of you.

A picturesque inland village, Alfafara is known for its mountainous landscape as well as its gastronomy. You simply can’t leave without trying its renowned olive oil and traditional dishes such as pericana, l’espencat, pastissets de moniato and casquinyols

So come and visit El Comtat, discover its villages and find out why it is considered one of the best counties in the Region of Valencia. Alfafara will welcome you with open arms and show you the very best of its impressive culture.
