What to do in Vall d’Alba
Vall d’Alba has sites of interest that you are going to want to visit. A good place to start is at San Cristóbal chapel, which sits in a beautiful setting that affords great vistas over the village. This is a wonderful place to spend a day out in the great outdoors as there are facilities to make your very own al fresco paella, a pool and a playpark as well as a restaurant and hotel.
You also won’t want to miss the parish churches of San Juan Bautista and Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles de la Barona, which houses an 18th century painting.
In and around Vall d’Alba, there are all sorts of interesting trails to explore. We’d recommend Ruta de les Sènies, named after the old structures that were used to extract underground water for irrigation purposes. Ruta dels Aljubs – the cistern trail - is another good choice as is Ruta de les Muntanyes, in which you can enjoy the mountains surrounding Vall d’Alba.
Another great activity is to explore the old schools dotted around the different districts and landscapes. Then there’s Museo Etnológico, the ethnological museum, where you can take a look at recreations of different spaces complete with the objects that were historically used out in the fields or to make olive oil and other products.
In terms of festivities, Vall d’Alba celebrates San Antonio in January, Feria del comercio, agrícola y ganadera in April, Holy Week, Romería a la Ermita de San Cristóbal in May, and Sant Antoni Montalba and Sant Jaume, fiestas which both feature great street parties. In late August Vall d’Alba hosts a week of culture and its patron saint festivities. Don’t miss the opportunity to come and spend some time at this lovely village.
