Upstream from the town of Chulilla, the Turia river flows through mountain landscapes covered with thick pine forests. Along the course of the river numerous recreational and camping areas have been laid out, and these serve as home bases for exploring the surrounding areas of Benagéber and Loriguilla, the Barchel waterfall, a variety of fountains in the area or the interesting examples of riverbank vegetation. Man-made monuments, such as the sanctuary of the Virgen del Remedio and its nearby lookout point, or the impressive Roman aqueduct of Peña Cortada, blend in harmoniously with the landscape. The towns of Chelva, Sinarcas, Titaguas and Tuéjar provide access to this large district constituting one of the most important woodland areas in the Land of Valencia. Following a visit to the area, the spas of Fuencaliente (Chulilla) or Baños de Verche (Domeño) provide a pleasant form of relaxation.
