The historic quarter

The medieval part of Bocairent was declared a national site of artistic-historical importance in 1975. A visit to the old town, declared an artistic-historical heritage site, is highly recommendable, especially after having seen its spectacular panorama from the road. The peculiar layout of its streets is in the purest Arabic style with climbs and descents, stairways, turnings, cul-de-sacs, little squares… A walk along its steep streets, using the appropriate footwear, will reveal hidden corners of great beauty. Fountains and plant pots are dotted along the route that will lead you to the three chapels of the old quarter: Sant Joan, Mare de Déu dels Desemparats and Mare de Déu d’Agost.
