Vila-real is a warm and welcoming town with an open spirit that will make you feel immediately at home.

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.
