The trip began with a visit to Cullera Castle and the Sanctuary of our Lady of the Castle,
with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. A short journey to
El Jardín Botánico de Cullera
to enjoy more than 2,500 plant species, a lovely lake,
and visit the Ethnological Museum which is located in a 19th century farmhouse.

Another short journey to the nearby Cave of the Dragut where, after a drink, a have a guided tour
relived the attack on Cullera by the Turkish pirate Dragut, the right hand man of Barbarossa.

And finally, some traditional Valencian cuisine at the Restaurante Casa Picanterra, which is in a
beautiful setting overlooking a lagoon. El Estany is a transition lagoon between the marsh and
the coastline – ducks, swans and all kinds of birds enjoy this beautiful place
