What to do in Villores
As you wander through Villores, make sure you look out for a couple of points of interest that you’ll be glad you stopped off at, namely the fountain and the wash house. The latter is still used today.
The narrow streets of Villores are a joy to explore. Wander along Fuente, Sant Roc, La Creveta, Dalt and La Costera streets and you might just find yourself in quintessential plazas like Plaza de la Vila and Plaza de la Bassa. In the higher part of the village, you can see the threshing ground where the grain used to be threshed, Nuestra Señora del Buen Suceso chapel, whose rustic appearance means that you might miss it at first, and the castle, which is a medieval defence tower.
Another important site is Palacio del Marqués de Villores, now the present-day town hall, which has a lovely 16th century arcade. We’d also recommend taking a walk to explore the peirones, crosses that have different meanings and are named after different saints.
If you’re keen to do some hiking, you could walk up to Molino de la Cueva, a mill sitting on the banks of the river Bergantes. The scenery here is really lovely. Alternatively, you could walk to Camell and Antón kermes oaks, Les Creuetes and Roca del Taüt.
In terms of Villores’ festivities, you won’t want to miss Santantonà, in honour of San Antón. The festival takes place in January and includes the blessing of the animals and the botargas and filantronas parade, which sees these characters accompany the image of the saint, and a big bonfire. And then there are the artisan-made espadrilles. So what are you waiting for? Start planning your getaway to Villores and get ready to fall in love with the village.
