Explore an awe-inspiring landmark and soak up stunning views across the surrounding countryside.

After a panoramic drive to Xàtiva, you’ll find yourself gazing up at the small city’s eponymous castle. Peering down on you from the summit of Sierra del Castell hill, this twin fortress simply commands your attention.
