Route the Arab Legacy

The six centuries-long Arab presence in the Mariola Mountain left numerous traces in all of its municipalities. Urban areas with narrow and fresh streets, defensive buildings or irrigation systems are some of the architectural examples that remain nowadays. Particularly noteworthy are the watchtower of Agres, the Castle of Banyeres de Mariola, the Muslim part of Barri Medieval (Medieval Neighbourhood) in Bocairent and its Covetes dels moros (literally “Moors caves”).
