With an extraordinary historic centre and fascinating sights, your time in Bocairent promises to be an unforgettable experience.


Just a stone’s throw from Sierra de Mariola natural park, Bocairent is home to numerous historic sites enveloped in the most beautiful of settings. Keep reading to discover just why the destination is a must-visit in the Region of Valencia.

What to see in Bocairent

As soon as you arrive, you will be blown away by the beauty of the historic centre. Breathing the Medieval period, the steep cobbled streets, bubbling fountains, picturesque ruins and no fewer than three chapels and a parish church - complete with a museum - are calling out to be explored. If you’re in the mood for visiting some museums, you’re in luck. Take a look around Museo Arqueológico Municipal (archaeological museum), Museo Antonio Ferr (Antonio Ferr museum), Museo de Oficios y Costumbres (trades and customs museum), Museo Festero (festival museum) and Museo Paleontológico (palaeontological museum). 

Just steps from the town centre are two of Bocairent’s most popular sites. The first is Cava de Sant Blai, a beautifully preserved ice house that is open to visitors. 

The second is perhaps the site Bocairent is best-known for. Covetes dels Moros is a collection of caves excavated into the nearby mountain rock face. The spaces are believed to have been used to store grain during the Moorish period. Though located at some height, the caves are accessible to visitors. Once you’ve taken your time to explore this must-visit, we’d also recommend visiting the underground monastery and the bullring. 

If you can, see if you can coincide your trip with one or all of Bocairent’s festivals. The Moors and Christians celebration is a spectacle while Danzas fills Plaza del Ayuntamiento with music, traditional dress and a joyful atmosphere. You also won’t want to miss the extraordinary local products and dishes, namely liqueurs, stuffed peppers, pericana (a pepper and cod spread) and more. Start planning your getaway to this incredible destination today.

Be inspired

The Region of València is well known for the sun and the beach but has many places of interest for the visitor. The inland areas of its three provinces are full of charming villages that are worth visiting, with historic buildings, churches, and castles surrounded by magnificent natural landscapes. Also, many coastal towns have a unique attraction, beyond the typical summer areas.
The Region of Valencia is well known for its pleasant climate and its beautiful golden sand and clean beaches and temperate waters. But in its inland regions host rural areas of great value that are increasingly visited by tourists from all over the world.
Located in the region of the Vall d'Albaida, Bocairent is a municipality that encompasses the essence of the inland areas of the Region of Valencia: nature, traditional gastronomy, and history.
You will fall in love with the Region of Valencia by the pleasant temperatures; but in January and February, there are places where you can enjoy the snow, as when you were a child.
