    stairs up to the castle

    the way up

    Favorite thing: Morella is built on a rocky crag commanding the surrounding countryside, at an altitude of about 1000m. So, after a long way by car up the serpentines...(better don´t look down next to the street) there are still "some" stairs to climb up to the castle ruins.

    the pueblo

    view to the village

    Favorite thing: Walking around Morella is to find wonderful examples of civil and religious architecture among an urban complex of medieval flavour. We can mention some works on civil architecture like Blasco de Alagón street (La Plaça), with its columns, where every sunday of de year a market takes place. The jewish quarter, some manorials like Cardenal Ram (16th century), Ciurana (14th c.), Cruilles (16th c.), Cofradía de Labradores (17th c.), Piquer (16th c.), The City Hall (14th - 15th c.), etc; are other examples of this kind of architecture.

    view from the castle

    Favorite thing: Morella is a city surrounded by 1562 metres of walls marked by towers (Beneito, Alós, Vella, de la Font, Redona, San Miguel, del Trinquet, de la Nevera, del Públic, S.Francisco, del Rey, de la Pólvora o Carraixet, del Forcall and de Fredes). These towers were built during de 14 th and 15th centuries and they were improved during the centuries 17th and 18th. We can come into the city through the gates of San Mateo, and San Miguel (14th century) , El Rey , Ferrisa, Forcall, de la Nevera and 'Els Estudis'.
    Once we have crossed one of these gates, and following the contour lines, we will find a labyrinth of streets with notable monuments which were the responsibles of declaring Morella 'Conjunto Histórico Artístico'(1965).

    A bit of history

    Favorite thing: Although this place has been inhabited since the neolitic times, as it is prooved by the aboundance of rock paintings. But the first records of a settlement date back to the Arab domination.

    Morella profited of its inexpugnable location to become an important regional center. It was first conquered by El Cid and then recovered by the Muslims. The definitve conquest took place in the XIII century, when it was annexed to the Crown of Aragon.

    narrow streets

    Fondest memory: Morella is probably one of the most interesting gothic cities in the Community of Valencia. The architecture is fascinating, the views to the surrounding country fantastic!
