La Safor

On the slopes of el Circ de la Safor, the highest peak in the region, we find one of the most leafy and well preserved landscapes in our lands. The geographic features of el Circ de la Safor, which reminds us of the glaciers of the Pyrenees, have shaped endemic flora and fauna.

How to arrive
The main communication road is the one that unites Gandia with Villalonga, which it is 10 km away from the CV-680.
Gastronomic Fair and Blat Picat (minced wheat) contest: around the first weekend of March. The Procession of Corpus Christi, where it is necessary to emphasize “l’alfombra” (the carpet). Celebrations of Moors and Christians: a weekend before October celebrations. Festivals of October: from Thursday before the third Sunday of October to later Monday, in honour of la Divina Aurora, el Santíssim Crist de la Salut and la Mare de Déu de la Font.

But Vilallonga also has Racó del Duc and the Reprimala, both joined by la Senda Verda, which runs along the old track of the train. Throughout the whole area there are different fountains and trails that make Vilallonga a compulsory destination for nature lovers. The urban fabric of l’Alcúdia and Cais neighbourhoods preserves alleys and typical houses of Moors. Also in the centre is la Font dels Setze Xorros, the modernist facades of el Gran Café and la Casa de la Cultura, as well as l’Església dels Sants Reis, la Capella de la Mare de Déu de la Font o l’ermita de Sant Antoni and Santa Bàrbara.

Among the most particular things of Vilallonga, its most characteristic dish is: el Blat Picat, to which is even dedicated a gastronomic fair on the first weekend of March.

Gentilici: Llobero, llobera.
