About the trip
In the interior of the province of Valencia you can find Cortes de Pallás. It is a small town with an enviable natural environment. It is a fairly small town with only 814 inhabitants, but it has a lot of charm.
One of the town's biggest highlights is the Parish church built in the 18th century. The mosaics which are distributed throughout the entire municipality are also rather important as they explain the history of the population. It was an important key factor for the Moors who refused to leave the town. Later, the king Felipe III expelled them which led to the population drop from 1500 to 160 inhabitants.
Those who will walk on the paths of La Cortada de Cortes de Pallás will fall in love with them. It is a hidden treasure of the Valencian Community filled with beautiful corners. Enjoy its landscapes: the cut walls of the Muela de Cortes, the Júcar canyons, the caves, the waterfalls and the Arroyo de Cortes.
