We start our family friedly getaway in the Province of Alicante. Here we find many charming towns to visit with children. One is Villena, a town where we can discover one of the most beautiful castles in the Region of Valencia
The Castle of Villena looks like a castle from a tale of knights and princesses.Visiting it with children is an authentic adventure!
Do not miss the opportunity to visit the treasure of Villena, a discovery of more than 10 kilos of gold from the Bronze Age.
Visit Ayora with kids
From Villena it is easy to get to Ayora, another charming town but this time in the Province of Valencia. In Ayora there is another castle that is worth visiting with children.
The Castle can be visited by guided tour throughout the year, for more information, visit the Turismo Ayora website.
If you like to hike, we recommend taking the "Ruta del Agua" or the "Ruta del Hilo Rojo", a tourist and cultural tour through the town of Ayora that allows you to get to know the local monuments, anecdotes and traditions by following a red line on the ground .
Visit Cofrentes with kids
If we adevntura a little further into the Province of Valencia, we end up in Cofrentes, which lies between the Júcar and Cabriel rivers.
Another castle awaits you! This castle is built on basalt rock of volcanic origin. From the castle there are beautiful views over the Cabriel river.
You can discover the surroundings of the town on a tourist train that runs two routes: one along the Cabriel River and one to the Cerro Agras volcano.

Discovering inland Castellón with kids
We also encourage you to get to know the Province of Castellón, especially Morella, one of the most beautiful towns in Spain.
When you visit medieval Morella as a family you should visit the castle, we recommend going up to the Plaza de Armas. The views are impressive! Children will love exploring the Castle of Morella using the children's map.
