Discover enchanting spots in Vilafamés!

Publishing date 4/03/2013

Wandering around the streets of Vilafamés, in the interior of Castellón, is a highly recommendable way of spending this last weekend in February. The lovely old quarter and its narrow streets, some with steps and facades covered with flowering plants, seems to doze at the feet of the castle, still standing guard over the surrounding countryside. As you walk round the town, don’t forget to take a look at the excellent museum of contemporary art, based in the Batlle palace, as well as the wine museum and the 17th century church of La Asunción, where you can see wall paintings and a beautiful altarpiece.

Admiring the views over the surrounding landscape of Pla de Vilafamés, with the peak of Penyagolosa mountain in the background, and exploring the winding streets that date back to Moorish times is all part of the charm of a town that has successfully combined modern life with age-old tradition.

Plus, if you decide to spend more than one day in this captivating destination, you can stay in El Jardín Vertical, listed by Rusticae as one of the thirty best hotels in the area. Alternatively, one of the other places to stay in the town is the Antic Portal hotel.

One of the best-known cultural attractions in Vilafamés is the contemporary art museum, "Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Vicente Aguilera Cerni", which holds around 500 works dating from the late 1920s to the present day.
