What to see in Aras de los Olmos

The best place to start your explorations is at Casa del Cortijo, which houses Aras de los Olmos’ Ecomuseum. Here you can find out more information about the municipality to make the most out of your visit. 

The Ecomuseum is one of the biggest attractions of the destination and a fantastic cultural and ethnographical activity that all the family will enjoy. The museum is unlike others as it is housed in different locations around the village, rather than being located in one site. The museum shines the light on the culture and traditions of this part of the Region of Valencia via exhibitions you are sure to enjoy.

Start your exploration at the aforementioned Casa del Cortijo, where we recommend visiting the patio, which is home to El Cortijo Tower and the Wax Mill. Continue by wandering down the traditional streets which have plenty of points of interest to stop off at. You’re sure to love the centre with its whitewashed façades, wrought iron balconies and clay roofs. 

Next, you’ll want to make sure you stop off at two of Aras de los Olmos’ best-known balconies  – el castellano and el balcón esquina – to take some photos. Afterwards, we recommend popping into 16th century Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles Parish Church, which is defined by an interesting mix of architectural styles.

Other historic heritage sites that are well worth a visit include the Medieval Oven, the walled kitchen gardens and the interesting Ethnobotanical Garden. Find out everything you need to know about the experience.

Make sure you don’t leave Aras de los Olmos without experiencing astrotourism. There’s an observatory and some very interesting activities running in the municipality. Another must is taking a geological walk and getting a photo with the replica of Losillasaurus Giganteus, an impressive dinosaur. 

After, leave the centre of the municipality behind to see Santa Catalina Chapel, a 17th century place of worship that sits atop a butte. An excursion you are sure to enjoy. 

And there are yet more surprises. Close to the centre of Aras de los Olmos is a small district, Losilla de Aras, which leads to a beautiful viewing point where you can gaze at a fantastic waterfall which feeds into the river Arcos. Other points of interest in the district are the natural spring and the old mill of the power station. So what are you waiting for? Come and fall in love with Aras de los Olmos.
