The town of Tavernes de la Valldigna is the largest in La Valldigna, a horseshoe-shaped valley surrounded by mountains and open in the east to the plains of the Mediterranean coast. Tavernes is part of La Safor, the southernmost administrative region in Valencia. Lying at the foot of the orange-growing valley of Tavernes de la Valldigna is the coast with sand beaches.
The quality of the landscape, the facilities and the water has earned the beach of maritime quarter a blue flag. The Tavernes beach offers water activities, restaurant, bar, shops, supermarkets, sports facilities, etc.
Must-sees in Tavernes include the 18th century parish church of Saint Peter the Apostle and the traditional surrounding streets, the Calvary, one of the best preserved in Valencia, which is accessed by a path marked by chapels depicting the passion of Christ.
Near to Tavernes we find the “Clot de la Font”, a natural spring located a few kilometres from the town at the foot of the Ombria mountain. It is a perfect location in which to spend a day in contact with nature and it is where the “Porrat del Dia de la Sang” fair takes place each year.
The hermitage of Saint Lawrence stands on a hill near the centre of the village and has a recreation area. From here we can walk along the dirt road that leads to a viewpoint offering a magnificent view of the coast.
