We will visit the incredible town of Jijona (Xixona in Valencian) and amazing caves of Canelobre, the karstic caves from 100,000 years ago. Not to mention that we will learn about the typical spanish sweet ‘Turrón’, and of course, taste it.

 

Jijona

Jijona is a town located in the Valencian Community on the eastern cost of Spain. The famous and traditional sweet comes from this town. It has been popular sweet for centuries but not only in Spain. Jijona’s economy is based on the production of Turrón, and there is located a museum where you learn everything about the process and history.

Turrón

Jijona is well known for its sweet – a type of sweet nougat, called Turrón de Jijona or Torró de Xixona. Thanks to the almond farming that existed since the Moorish farmers, currently many factories produce Turrón. The inventors were Jews or Arabs and the term ‘Jijona’  comes from the 17th century. Turrón is recognised as a synonym for quality.

Canelobre Caves

When we visit the Canelobre Caves you will be able to see a magnificent example of a karstic cave in the small municipality of Busot. They are considered as one of the largest and the most known caves in Valencian Community. The caves date back to 7 million years and they appeared because of the action of the water on the limestone rock. The entrance is through a 45 meter long tunnel that brings you into the 70 meters Vault caverns, within 80,000 m² extended area. The temperature is almost always the same in winter or summer, around 17 ºC. There can be seen many different forms such as stalagmites, coralloids, speleothems and stalactites, spars, crust, flowers, etc. Because the enormous size and the shape resembles to the highlights of ‘La Sagrada Familia’.
