Sierra de Espadán natural park is located in one of the most mountainous provinces of Spain – the province of Castellón. It is one of the largest forests in the Valencian Community, located very close to the Mediterranean Sea. A wide variety of native flora and fauna inhabit this ecosystem. Its cork oaks, also called by the locals “Sureres“, are the ones that give the most fame to this natural area.
The Mariola mountain range was declared a Natural Park on January 8, 2002. Its abundant fountains, numerous farmhouses and a large network of trails stand out among other things. But the most important historical elements are neveras -buildings for storing snow, that were in operation between the 16th-20th centuries.
