The Moorish Caves

The Covetes dels Moros de Bocairent are a group of artificial caves with holes in the shape of windows, located in the middle of a vertical rock wall, some 300 m from the town centre. It has about fifty windows that give access to as many chambers. The windows are arranged in 3-4 levels but without forming regular “floors”. The interpretations about the use of these cavities have been very different: burial chambers of ancient times, granaries, Visigothic monasteries… They would correspond to a very precise moment, probably between the 10th and 11th centuries.
