Vila-real

Main image

The Region of Valencia is defined by its fascinating culture, long history and beautiful landscapes. Its towns and villages are the reflection of years and years of traditions and customs that have been handed down the generations. The result is a destination where the past blends with the present in an irresistible mix that will find you coming back here time and time again. From north to south and from east to west, the region is bursting with diverse destinations that you won’t be able to help yourself from falling in love with. 

Vila-real is a warm and welcoming town with an open spirit that will make you feel immediately at home. Its historic heritage is just one of the reasons to visit, as is its stunning natural landscape flanking the banks of the river Mijares. And that’s not to mention all the wonderful sights there are to see. 

What to do in Vila-real

We recommend you start your exploration of Vila-real strolling its streets. The town is well-connected to local infrastructure, meaning it won’t be difficult to get there and dive right in. You can start in plaza de la Vila, a Medieval square, and then continue to Motxa tower and San Pascual Baylón basilica. The eastern bell tower of the church houses the biggest rolling bell in the world and its western tower has the most beautiful carillon in Spain and one of the most beautiful in the world. 

Once you’ve soaked up the charm of the centre and - why not? - tried some local gastronomy, you can head out of the town and into the surrounding natural wonderland. El Termet de la Mare de Déu de Gràcia offers one of the most beautiful landscapes in the county. Nestled in the Protected Area of Desembocadura del Millars, the area can be explored by walking the lovely hiking trails that snake through the wilderness.

The recipe that we bring you today is typical of La Plana region, in Castellón province, although you can find Olla de la Plana throughout Comunitat Valenciana. It is a traditional dish, which will take you back to your childhood, to your grandmother's kitchen, in short to gastronomy where simplicity and quality products prevail.
