With its incredible cities, welcoming villages and extraordinary landscapes, the Region of Valencia offers somewhere new to visit every single day. Places where time has stood still, where traditions are still very much alive and places where nature is king. Beniarrés, located in El Comtat county, is a village epitomising all of this, making it the perfect destination for a day out.
Beniarrés is a small village in the north of the province of Alicante. Sitting on the banks of the river Serpis, the municipality offers plenty of history and culture for you to live and explore. As you walk the village’s Moorish streets you’ll feel the palpitations of its distant past and the warmth and kindness of the locals will make you feel totally at home.
What to do in Beniarrés
Beniarrés is all about nature. We recommend you start your day here in Cova de l’Or, an important neolithic site situated 650 metres above sea level. The climb up will certainly be worth the effort, however, as beyond the prehistoric site you’ll find yourself faced with an extraordinary outlook over Sierra de Mariola, Font Roja, Serrella, Aitana and Puig Campana.
If you don’t fancy the climb or if you’re visiting Beniarrés with little ones, you can head to the Cova de l’Ora Information Centre, where you can see replicas and original objects found across the different excavation sites.
Nature is omnipresent in Beniarrés. The mouth of the Encantà gorge, together with the municipality’s reservoir, will immerse you in one of the most beautiful water landscapes in the Region of Valencia. You can take a hike through the natural world or a dip in the incredible pools throughout the year.
And once you’ve had your fill of nature, you can wander through the pretty streets of Beniarrés, stopping off to taste its traditional cuisine. A wonderful end to an incredible day out.
