Things to See

From an architectural point of view, the most interesting building is the Castillo de Castell de Ferro, a Roman tower which formed part of the defensive line in the Nasrid era.


For visitors who want to try the most traditional delicacies of the gualcheros, ask for sardines and typical stews made with fish and home-grown vegetables. 


The most important fiesta takes place in September, with the patron saint's festival in honour of San Miguel Arcángel; in August, las Fiestas del Turista; in May, la Fiesta de las Cruces; and in February la Fiesta de la Candelaria.
