Villajoyosa Free Walking Tour
The free walking tour begins at the indicated time in the Plaza de la Generalitat - found on the banks of the Amadorio river.
We'll explore the old town of Villajoyosa, following the remains of its renaissance walls. And it's alongside these walls that we'll discover the architecture of the church-fort of Our Lady of the Assumption, built in the reign of Felipe II. The unusual part? That the other side of the church forms part of the defensive walls themselves!
The tour then continues, among the famous coloured houses of Villajoyosa, decoration which shines in the light of the Mediterranean coast. As we weave among the streets, your guide will tell you all about the unusual celebrations which take place in the town. Among them - the Moors and Christians Fiestas, which have been declared of National Touristic Interest.
And this picturesque village is not only known for its parties and monuments, but for its food! And one of its star products is cocoa - which shares a long history with the town. We'll explain all about it, and the importance of the Chocolates Valor factory.
Following two hours, the free tour will conclude in the historic centre of Villajoyosa.
