What to do in Burriana
Conjunto Histórico de Burriana, the Historic Complex of Burriana, preserves part of the original Medieval street layout, and you can still see remnants of the traditional architecture today. The magnificent manor houses, built between the 19th and 20th century, are certainly a highlight, but let’s kick off the tour at El Salvador Parish Church. Initially built in the 13th century, the church is a beautiful mishmash of styles, and the famous ‘Templat’ belltower resides here, a symbolic landmark of Burriana.
Let's continue our journey through Burriana by exploring the religious architecture of 19th century Exconvento de la Merced, and San José-Carmelitas Descalzos Convent. Take a trip around the chapels and round off the experience by visiting Burriana’s Municipal Archeological Museum and its fascinating collection.
Keep exploring Burriana’s surroundings with a tour of its watchtowers, Torre del Mar and Torre de Carabona. And you can’t leave without wandering down to one of the many fantastic beaches. Malvarrosa-Grao beach and L’Arenal beach are both great choices, thanks to the many services they offer.
The nature surrounding Burriana is a great reason to visit the area. Plan a day out to the Mouth of the River Millars Protected Area, replete with camera-ready nooks and a great bird watching spot. Or, head out to Clot de la Mare de Déu Municipal Natural Area. Finally, to end the trip, take the plunge and try out some water sports at Burriana's many sports centres. Treat yourself to a coastal getaway and glide along the waves with the wind in your hair for an experience you won’t forget.
