Located in the north-west of the region of Murcia, the Ricote Valley is also known as the Moorish Valley. This historical, cultural and geographical enclave was one of the last bastions of Arabic culture in south-eastern Spain and has remained largely untouched despite the passing of time.
Situated along the middle stretch of the River Segura, the valley encompasses several very beautiful districts, all with a wealth of cultural and natural heritage. Our journey starts at the Ricote Valley Interpretative Centre in Archena. Nestled amid the mountains, Archena is most famous for its thermal waters and spa, which were already used back in Roman times. Other highlights include the Virgen de la Salud Sanctuary and the Casino. Our route continues through the quiet town of Villanueva del Segura, with its Huerto de las Monjas (convent garden) and wonderful views from the San Roque Hermitage.
It is also worth stopping off at Ulea, where the Corazón de Jesús view-point offers an insight into the extraordinary richness of the Murcian countryside and market gardens, and at Ojós, where you will find the San Agustín church and the Azúd dam. From here, the valley stretches before you, flanked by palm and lemon trees.
The town of Ricote itself is set in the hills above the river. While here, be sure to visit the Palacete de Llamas and San Sebastián Church, as well as sampling some of the local cuisine. The next town after Ricote is Blanca.
From the castle located on the Peña Negra (Black Rock) you can appreciate the full glory of the River Segura. Located along the beautiful “Water-wheels Route” in Abarán you can see the Noria Grande (Large Wheel), the largest working water-wheel in Europe, as well as enjoying the outstanding views from the Santos Médicos view-point. Our journey ends in the district of Cieza, where you can discover the Medina de Siyâsa archaeological site, which dates back to the times of Islamic rule and is located on the castle hill.
In the Ricote Valley the importance of water and the passing of time have created a truly fascinating enclave in the heart of the Murcia region. Let the river be your guide and enjoy discovering this idyllic area.
