Alcoi & Bocairent
Alcoi is situated in the Comunidad Autónoma (autonomous community) of Valencia in southeastern Spain. This historic town is well-known for its fantastic Moors and Christians fiesta, cuisine, and areas of natural beauty.
It is known also as ‘the city of bridges’. From its many bridges, you can see the magnificent mountains and natural landscape surrounding Alcoi, including the Carrascal de la Font Roja natural park and the Sierra de Mariola mountain, known for its variety of aromatic plants.
The square of Plaza de España is the center of the city. In the medieval quarter, you can visit the old City Hall, the Archaeological Museum and the Museum of the Festivities of Moors and Christians.
If you go in the opposite direction, up to San Nicolás street, you will discover the Modernist part of town.
Fun fact: Alcoi is also the hometown of the Serpis olives, which has to be the most famous tapas in the world.
Bocairent, or “the village between the rocks”, originated during the Muslim period with the name of Bukayrān. This is well reflected in the conformation of its historic centre, full of stairs and steep streets. You can’t miss its three chapels: Sant Joan, Mare de Déu dels Desemparats y Mare de Déu d’Agost. If you like museums this is the perfect city for you: the “Museo de Oficios y Costumbres” and the “Museo Arqueológico Municipal Vicent Casanova” will give you the opportunity to dive into the culture of this beautiful village.
