What to see in La Vall d’Uixó

A great place to start your exploration of La Vall d’Uixó is Coves de Sant Josep, a subterranean river embraced by stalagmites, stalactites and other incredible rock formations. You can visit the caves in different ways, either by hopping on a boat with all the family and taking a journey deep into the underbelly of the earth or taking a living history tour that will bring the caves to life. Concerts are also periodically held in the caves so you can enjoy the spectacle of live music in the most incredible of settings. 

La Vall d’Uixó is also home to an impressive archaeological site - Poblado Ibérico de Sant Josep - an Iberian and Roman settlement whose fascinating remains can be visited on a guided tour. 

Once you’ve visited the ancient settlement, we’d recommend making your way to Museo Municipal de la Vall d’Uixó where you can see the many items that were found at the site and in the local area. If this isn’t enough history for you, head to Senda XYZ, a defence line stretching from Cuenca to Almenara built in 1938. Here you will see trenches and other defence structures used during the Spanish Civil War. 

If you like walking, the San José and La Alcudia aqueducts make excellent excuses for a trail. From here, you’re just a stone’s throw from the historic centre of the town where you can pop into the town market and visit the contemporary art gallery. Once your hunger sets in, get your hands on some delicious sweet manjòvena, but make sure you leave some room for a dish of arroz empedrat. And then continue your time in the centre by visiting the chapels, towers and churches. Full of geology, history and archaeology, La Vall d’Uixó is a destination you won’t want to miss.
