Burriana is a town with a wealth of culture. Besides the beach, the town has much to offer the visitor in a tourist route that starts by finding out more about its history and artistic and cultural heritage. If we pay a visit to the bell tower, standing a little more than 51 metres high, we have a wonderful panoramic view of the entire Plana region. The bell tower was erected in the XV Century, next to the Church of San Salvador, in primitive Gothic style. This group of buildings was declared a National Artistic Monument Site in 1969. The restored Exconvento de la Merced, now the Municipal Arts Centre and declared a Provincial Historical Monument, deserves special mention. We could not leave out the symbolic Orange Museum either, the only one in Europe which pays tribute to the history of this traditional crop, on which the town’s economy is based. We end our tour in the Temple of San José, of the Carmelite order, which dates from the XIX Century. Inside are impressive altars of polychrome wood of great artistic value. Burriana also has an important foundation to promote plastic arts. The Fandos Burriana Foundation, in a modernist building dating from the early XIX Century, houses an important collection of art works by local artists from the province.
