Valencia: Excursions

La Huerta Photo
Seen from the air, Valencia is surrounded by a wide green belt of very fertile land, called "La Huerta". Up to four harvests per year are possible here.

Very interesting are the traditional houses of the agricultural labourers, the so-called Barracas, constructions of clay with roofs of rush. Few of them are conserved until today. The same has to be said about the manorial houses, Alquerías. A very nice example is the gothic Alquería del Pi in Burjasot.

The perhaps most beautiful cultures are in Alcira, Carcagente and Oliva, as well as the rice-cultures of Sollana, Sueca and Cullera. Its golden color in autumn creates a unique ambience.
La Albufera Photo
This lake is located at the South of "La Huerta". here you may have some boating and visit romantical fishing villages, as the picturesque Palmar.
Sagunto und Játiva
Sagunto Photo has to offer a very well conserved Roman theater and an impressive medieval fortress, thus certainly being worth a visit.

Játiva Photo is conserving its ambience of a traditional manorial town. Its fortress shows remains of almost all periods of Spanish history, starting with some old-iberian walls. Close to Játiva there is the cave Cova Negra, one of the most important prehistorical remains of the peninsula.
