The Region of Valencia has a tremendous artistic and cultural legacy as a result of the different civilisations that have housed our land and the architectural styles throughout its history. You'll find towns full of culture and history that treasure an invaluable historical and artistic heritage.
The cities of the Costa Blanca reflect the passage of ancient civilisations, such as the Iberian Roman city of Lucentum in Alicante or the Illeta dels Banyets in El Campello. Not to mention the Route of the Castles by the Vinalopó region or the European routes of modernist architecture in Alcoy or Novelda. The province of Valencia offers a rich cultural program too with visits to the Castle of Cullera, the Ducal Palace of Gandia, the Roman ruins of Sagunto or the Borgia Territory in the historic centre of Xàtiva, among others. Moreover, the province of Castellón offers rock art and avant-garde in a small radius of kilometres highlighting the cultural wealth of tourist towns such as Benicàssim, Oropesa del Mar or Peñíscola.
The caves were places of recollection and mysticism for the ancient man. They became dwellings, sanctuaries, and ritual settings with shamans in Prehistory. Possessors of an ancestral knowledge that keeps beating from its walls thousands of years later. One of the caves with more history of the Region of Valéncia is the Cueva de las Calaveras in Benidoleig, province of Alicante. A must visit to learn our past better.
