Description

With its centuries of agricultural history and wealth of farming traditions, it might come as no surprise that Valencia's Tribunal of Waters—a court established to settle irrigation disputes—is on UNESCO's intangible cultural heritage list. Learn about farming in this region and enjoy a hearty lunch of classic Valencian cuisine and many rural activities in a typical farmhouse.

Just outside the city, the urban landscape fades away and is replaced by a rural idyll. Be picked up from your Valencia hotel and after a 20 minutes trip discover the Huerta de Valencia that treasures a rich history, noting fascinating norias (water-powered irrigation machines that date to Moorish times) and systems of ditches and terraces.

Spot traditional alquerías (farmhouses) and old-fashioned barracas, more humble abodes that still stand from centuries past. Learn about the rural lifestyle of this region's inhabitants. Scope out plentiful crops that the owner of the barraca cultivates. See typical carriages, a small ethnological museum with old farming tools, a mini farm, animal stables and then get close to the stove to take a look asa genuine Valencian paella is cooked by an expert chef.

After your exploration, you can taste delicious typical dishes, the paella, a dessert and Valencian sweets. After lunch stroll the farm to visit a nearby small barraca equipped in the traditional way.
