Visit an ancient olive tree that has borne witness to centuries of history in Segorbe.

Sitting in the heart of Sierra Calderona is a natural monument that is truly one of a kind in the Region of Valencia. La Morruda is an ancient olive tree that is a wonderful symbol of Segorbe’s longstanding olive oil tradition.

Although it makes the mind boggle, La Morruda is a whopping 1,500 years old. The tree is large, coming in at almost eight metres high, with a diameter of fifteen metres and a circumference of seven metres.

Segorbe is an inland municipality in the province of Castellón that has a great deal to explore. Historic sites await around every corner, such as the castle, the Medieval walls, the Muslim aqueduct, the cathedral and the many churches and chapels.
