In the interior of the province of Castellon, small villages preserve their historical and architectural heritage. Castles dominate the highest part of the town and overlook a mountainous landscape. In every corner of these villages, time seems to stand still centuries ago. The stone from the surrounding mountains was used to build the facades and walls of the houses, churches, monuments, and streets.
On the road there are several viewpoints where you can see how the villages seem to be hanging from the mountain. On the gastronomic side, there are many agricultural producers who prepare regional gastronomic delicacies such as olive oil, cheeses, and wines. You have to try them.

It is necessary to dedicate a whole day to visit Morella because each space is a unique piece.

The access gates, churches, convents, stairways and streets make up a heritage that is difficult to find anywhere else in Spain.
