What to do in Nules
Starting our explorations in the centre of Nules, we’d recommend making your way to the Neoclassical Carmelitas Descalzos Church and square. On your way to San Joaquín Chapel, dating back to the 18th century, you will spot lots of ceramic altarpieces with religious themes in the streets. If you have time, make sure you take a look around the Municipal Market.
Next up on your to-visit list is the Enrique Giner Medal Museum, housed in what was once San Miguel Chapel (also known as El Fort), which has a heptagonal plan. Nules also has a large number of bunkers, trenches, fortifications and even a command centre, all of which are heritage from the Spanish Civil War.
And that’s just the start of everything there is to see in Nules. Located outside the municipality is Mascarell, a fully walled destination that will transport you back to the Middle Ages. You’ll also want to take a look at Benicató Roman Villa, an archaeological site that was inhabited between the 1st and 4th centuries BC.
Nules Botanic Garden is a great place for a stroll, as is L'Estany Municipal Natural Landscape. And then, of course, there are the beaches. Nules boasts El Bovalar, Les Marines, El Rajadell and L'Alcudia Beaches, which are all wonderful places to enjoy the Mediterranean. Make sure you come and visit Nules.
