ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES IN ALCALATÉN-MIJARES

The Alcalatén - Mijares Itinerary traverses points of both inland Castellón regions by the Natural Park of Penyagolosa, vertebrate by the Lucena, Mijares and Villahermosa rivers.
During this route we can visit the baths of the Roman village of Pujolet de Santa in l'Alcora, which are part of a large Roman villa that remains mostly hidden underground. Further up, in Lucena del Cid, we will find Torre de Foios, an Iberian construction possibly for defensive and military purpose, which was part of the structure of an extensive Iberian settlement. In Zucaina we will discover the spectacular tumular necropolis of Cabañiles of the 7th century BC. Finally, in Cortes de Arenoso we find the fortified settlement of Morrones, an Ancient Iron Age village dated in the 7th century BC.
The rich landscape of these region with its mountains, native forests and beautiful rivers, as well as the charm of its towns make this itinerary a special occasion to enjoy nature and to taste the delicious gastronomy of the inland Castellón.
Among other attractions, we can visit the Alcalatén Castle in l'Alcora from the Islamic period.
