La Salzadella

It has Moorish origins, although Iberian and Medieval remains have been found. It had a thriving livestock industry during the Middle Ages, as well as intensive trade, fuelled by the exportation of wool. It was granted a Town Charter in 1238, by Blasco de Alagón. Its town walls and the various "peirons" (stone or brick pillars placed just outside many towns, marking the beginning of a pathway) are evidence of its long and storied history.

What to see

Going in through one of the two surviving gateways from the old town walls, the Portal de la Bassa and the Portal de les Coves, you can explore the charming streets of this municipality. Be sure to visit the Parish Church and various hermitages, such as those of San Vicente and Sant Antoni.


The landscape features typical Mediterranean vegetation, such as olive, almond and fruit trees, with the famous cherries deserving of a special mention.
