Excursion to Valencian Mountain Towns: Anna and Xátiva

On a day trip from the city of Valencia, we will venture into the Valencian mountains. This excursion is highly popular if you want to escape the city and immerse yourself in nature and culture.

This journey takes you to the heart of the Valencian countryside and its two historic cities, Xátiva and Anna. Monumentality, nature, and landscapes await you in the Valencian inland.

Description

Starting from the capital of the Valencian Community, we will delve into the mountainous landscapes.

We will discover two historic and rural cities known for their perfectly preserved monumental buildings. In Xátiva, one of the most important cities in the province of Valencia with a rich history, we will explore El Castell, a castle perched on the hill where the city is located. It is one of the most impressive buildings, as El Castell is a double fortress divided into two parts. Built on Roman and Iberian remains, it offers a glimpse into the history represented by its walls.

Furthermore, we will find the fortress embracing the nature of Sierra Castell, from which the castle derives its name. It becomes an important stone bastion with gardens, columns, and cross-shaped elements—an impressive architectural feat.

Afterward, we will take a walk through the historic center of Xátiva before returning to our vehicles and heading towards the Cervelló Palace in Anna.

Anna, a city rich in history, will be the focus of our visit to the Palace of the Counts of Cervellón. Located in the historic center of Anna, this palace recreates the decorative world of the Muslims. Since the 12th century, the Muslims settled in the municipality and left their decorative style in mosaics, courtyards, and rooms.

On our way back to Valencia, we will make a final stop to capture the beauty of Lake Anna’s surroundings. The city is part of Albufera, and the multiple water springs throughout the city will accompany us throughout the tour, making it a mandatory stop before concluding this intense day trip from Valencia to the mountain towns.

Highlights

Visit the historic center and castle of Xátiva.

Explore the Cervelló Palace, known as the Valencian Alhambra, and the lake area in Anna.

We booked the Small Group to Alpejurra tour. The tour is a great value and well worth the money and the time. It was a very long and full day. We learned much about the area, visited beautiful mountain towns, tasted local foods, and enjoyed mountain vistas. Our guide, Gonzalo, was a pleasure and fun to spend the day with. He communicated well in English. Highly recommended.

I desperately needed tickets to the Alhambra and they were booked out weeks before my trip : ( I could only get tickets to the Genaralife but not Nasrid Palaces. All the planing and expense for my trip to Granada would have been in vain if not for the help of Lilly. We ended up getting the Granada card with guided tour of Alhambra for 2. It was a lot more than I had intended to spend as I had not wanted a tour. However I was so incredibly happy that I went with Discovering Spain. We saved so much by going with them directly rather than an online company. Our guide Jesus is an art historian with so much of passion, talent and knowledge. He gave so much colour and depth to our tour. He was patient and interested in what we wanted to do. He went at our pace (my Mum is 71), and tailor’s the tour to your interests, and was a real gentleman. Lilly was super helpful with local tips and a very prompt and good communicator. What I like most about Lilly was that she was so helpful and professional and didn’t try to sell me something I didn’t want or need. We did end up making pretty good use of the Granada Card and the Alhambra tour was the most memorable experience my Mum and I have had in the longest time. Thank you both Lilly and Jesus, you guys helped make our Granada trip incredible.
