What to do in Yecla

Monte Arabí

A large stone structure with a landscape of great beauty and uniqueness.
The erosive phenomena that have been caused in the rocky walls are striking: hollows, caves, shelters and honeycomb or honeycomb-shaped perforated surfaces.

With a rugged appearance, it has notable ravines on its slopes. The summit of the sierra is known as “Capilla del Fraile” and stands at 1237 m, being the highest point in the municipality of Yecla.

RUTAS CULTURALES:

Churches Route

In Yecla you can find everything from large churches such as the Basílica de la Purísima to small hermitages such as Santa Bárbara. Others, such as San Roque, conserve details in Mudejar-style wood, making it the oldest church in Yecla. All of them hide exquisite details, so check their timetables and be sure to rediscover Yecla.

Cerro del Castillo Route

At the top of Yecla you can enjoy wonderful panoramic views over several surrounding villages. Climb the stairs at the Paso de la Bandera and take a deep breath. If you keep climbing you can reach the Santuario del Castillo where you will also find an important archaeological site, Hisn Yakka. Don't forget to look at all the little houses and "thrifts" you will find on the way up.
