Els Ports de Morella: stone reigns supreme

Els Ports de Morella: stone reigns supreme

These are highlands crowned by the fortified town of Morella, whose silhouette stands tall on the horizon. In this district, the scenery is a combination of natural treasures (oak trees and shrubbery where truffles are found) and human constructions. Crops growing on terraced slopes, ancient stonewalled herding paths, stone farmhouses, chapels and sanctuaries comprise a landscape viewed from on high by soaring vultures and eagles. There are numerous sanctuaries and chapels: Vallivana (Morella), Sant Cristòfol, Mare de Déu de la Font and Sant Pere (Castellfort), Mare de Déu de la Balma (Zorita del Maestrazgo), Virgen de la Naranja (Olocau del Rey), etc. All of these are worth a visit, as they command panoramic views and have interesting sights to see. Signposted footpaths and hiking routes provide a good way to see this district, containing some of the finest mountain scenery in the northernmost section of the Land of Valencia.
