With its fascinating heritage and vibrant festivals, the town of Burjassot is well worth a visit.

Situated in Horta Nord, just a stone’s throw from València city, Burjassot is a quintessential huerta town. Enveloped in fields of agricultural land whose colours and aromas evolve with the seasons and criss-crossed with irrigation canals, the municipality is popular among cyclists

What to see in Burjassot

A great place to start your exploration of Burjassot is at Los Silos, a series of underground structures built in the 16th century to store grains, wheat in particular. On the ground floor, you can see the pilons, lids which were lifted up to pour the grains into the subterranean spaces before being shut to keep the produce fresh. Next on your to-visit list should be Palacio de San Juan de Ribera, an 18th century palace - whose origins date back to Medieval times - where San Juan de Ribera once lived. San Miguel, an 18th century church, is also well worth popping your head into. 

Not far from the capital of the region, Burjassot is a lively town with plenty of services, including a university campus. In terms of culture, the destination is the proud birthplace of  Vicent Andrés Estellés, an illustrious poet and important figure in the Valencian literature scene, dedicating a poetry competition to his name and a statue that stands in Plaza de Emilio Castelar. 

Like many destinations in the Region of Valencia, Burjassot hosts a number of festivals throughout the year. In the summer, for instance, it’s time for Asunción de la Virgen, which is celebrated with a culinary competition. On the 9 October, the Day of the Region of Valencia, the locals cook up delicious ollas de arròs amb fesols i naps, which is traditional in the county. And then in March, it’s Fallas with its explosive line-up of events. As you can see, Burjassot is an excellent destination to visit all year round.​​​​​​​
