What to see in Alpuente

Alpuente has archaeological remains and cave paintings that prove that the area was populated in as far back as the Bronze Age. History is palpable wherever you go. We recommend visiting Alpuente’s Castle and Town Walls and exploring the caliphal and medieval town, which has remains of properties and structures such as Alhama Tower. The medieval layout of the streets and the monuments comprising the oldest part of Alpuente have led to it being listed an Historic-Artistic Site.

Your next stop should be the Romanesque-Gothic Nuestra Señora de la Piedad Parish Church and the different medieval kitchen gardens that you can visit around the town walls. There are, in fact, two wonderful walks that will take you on a discovery of the history of the gardens as well as the town walls.

Dinosaurs have left their mark throughout the municipality in the form of footprints. Some of these sites can be visited on your own, though you will learn much more if you join a guided tour. We would also recommend you visit both Alpuente’s Ethnological Museum and Santa Bárbara Palaeontological Museum, also known as MUPAL, to discover what life was like here in times past and find out more about these legendary creatures.

In the outskirts of Alpuente, make sure you visit Los Arcos Aqueduct, dating back to the medieval period, or do some hiking to explore the various hamlets in Alpuente, namely El Collado, La Torre, El Hontanar, Corcolilla, La Almeza, La Canaleja, Las Eras, Baldovar, El Campo de Abajo, El Campo de Arriba, La Carrasca and La Cuevarruz. Here you will find chapels, old ovens, incredible viewing points, mills and plenty of places of interest.

If you are searching for some nature during your time in Alpuente, make sure you don’t miss Cañada Pastores, a natural area that is home to century-old juniper trees and a veteran Spanish juniper. There are also countless incredible walks for you to enjoy. Alpuente has an extensive list of attractions so make sure you come to experience them all in person.
