What to see in Cheste​​​​​​​

As you wander the streets, you will be taken aback by the historic townhouses. These two and three-storey buildings are defined by pretty façades and large doors used to give access to carts and horses that tended to be kept in stables and patios at the back. The most historic part of the town dates back to Arab times as is evidenced by the narrow and winding streets. 

Make sure to look out for the ceramic altarpieces decorating the façades. Dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, these works of art often depict religious themes. The town market, built in 1928, is another unusual building that is well worth a visit. 

Before too long, you will come across San Lucas Evangelista Church. This 18th century place of worship is a fine example of the Late Baroque style with its façade of classical features. The interior, however, is more of an ode to the Rococo style. Cheste also has a chapel, La Virgen de la Soledad Chapel. 

The landscapes enveloping Cheste beckon you to do some walking. Areas like La Lomiquia Park have recreational areas that lovers of the great outdoors will love. There are also plenty of walking trails that will lead you into scenery defined by carob trees, orange groves and dry stone buildings.

Cheste also has a vibrant event calendar that is full of festivities. One of the many events taking place over the year is San José Parade, a Festival of Provincial Tourist Interest. Cheste Wine Harvest Festival revolves around the 18 October when you can see grape stomping and plenty of traditional dress. 

The Summer Festival, which is usually held in the final two weeks of July, combines exhibitions of farming machinery and live performances. And the Holy Week and La Virgen de la Soledad Gloriosa Festival has a jam-packed programme of religious events as well as music (Verbena del Mantón) and flower parades (Día de la Flor). 

And last but by no means least, Cheste offers incredible gastronomy. You simply have to try gachamiga, a dish made of pork, potatoes and tomatoes, olla con pelotas and olla de ayuno, as well as delgadicos and tortas de toro. All washed down with good local wine. 

During your time in Cheste, you can also visit the surrounding villages of Chiva, Buñol, Alborache and Macastre. So what are you waiting for? Come along to enjoy the landscapes, heritage and festivals.
