Location

El Rincón de Ademúz is a curious Valencian enclave, linked to the province of Valencia only by the Turia river, connecting Ademuz to the Valencian capital. It is a charming area and one of the most beautiful natural sites in the Valencian Community, nestled between the provinces of Cuenca and Teruel.

The territory is rugged with huge contrasts between mountains and hills, deciduous and pine forests, and fertile valleys filled with fields and renowned apple orchards. Ademuz, the capital of the region, is built on a hillside, with the Turia river skirting its base. It dates back to the 13th century and is a mix of old and new.

Starting with the castle on the hill, the town cascades downward, evolving from small dwellings into more modern, free-standing buildings. During your time in Ademuz, you will stay in one of the guesthouses nestled in the older part of the town, surrounded by opportunities to experience the local cuisine. The stables are conveniently located only a short five-minute walk from the town, next to the river.
