Sightseeing in Bocairent means going into another time, into times of horse-drawn carts or donkeys carrying snow along narrow stone paths or times of steep mountains where the demons of the writer Enric Valor hid.
As soon as you arrive, it is striking to contemplate this fantastic fortress made up of its historical centre which takes us back to medieval times through its winding streets and the various houses of those times. The church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, in Gothic style and later adapted to the tastes of the Baroque, houses a museum where the works of different artists from Valencia are exhibited as well as an extensive collection of ecclesiastical relics.
To experience the history of this area up close, there is nothing better than visiting its museums and monuments such as the San Blas cave, where you can see what it was like inside; the cave monastery, cut out of the rock itself; the bullring, also carved out of the rock and the oldest in the Valencian Community, or the curious Moorish cave, an artificial cave full of windows and passageways, supposedly used for storage.
Bocairent is a town with a lot of history, charm and magic that you should not miss.
