Albaida is a fertile valley dotted with numerous villages. It is located in privileged surroundings at a distance from the sea that means that both the coast and inland can be equally enjoyed. The area has a microclimate with mild temperatures, both in winter and summer.
Tourist attractions in Rugat include the Islamic necropolis of La Foieta, the castle, Rugat Palace (14th century), and the parish church (early 14th century). The altarpiece here is spectacular (with twelve panels dedicated to the Virgin of Grace, designed by Nicolau Borras - student of Juan de Juanes - in the late 1500s) and was conceived for the Valldigna Monastery (its shield appears on the facade). Nature fans will love the "toll del datiler" and the old mill.
Rugat, along with surrounding towns, is famous for typical Valencian rice dishes such as "arròs caldós" or "arròs al forn", vegetable and sweet potato cakes, the local take on the Swiss roll, and wood-roasted pumpkin.
The fiestas of Rugat begin on the last Thursday of July and end on the following Sunday, after a huge meal with all villagers. They are in honour of the patron saint, Sant Bernat, although they also pay homage to the Divine Aurora, the Immaculate Virgin and Christ of the Prodigies.
The Natura campsite is located in natural surroundings at the foot of the mountain, just half a kilometre from the picturesque, enchanting village of Rugat in the Albaida valley.
