Carcaixent: "The cradle of the Valencian orange"

Thursday 9th May

Spain is Europe’s largest orange producer and two thirds of those oranges come from the region around Valencia.  They are said to be among the best in the world and their cultivation in Spain goes back to 1781 to the Valencian locality of Carcaixent, where the first plantation of Citrus Aurantium was established. 

The tour will commence with a visit to the famous Magatzem de Ribera (Warehouse of Ribera), next, a visit to the Palau de la Marquesa de Montortal, built around 1780 and renovated in 1850 and finally to the nearby Huerto de San Vincente, for a guided tour, which will include a walk through the gardens and a typical Valencian orange grove dating from 1870.

There will be a tasting of the oranges and the day will be rounded off with a tapas lunch.

For a full description of the trip, including photos, a detailed programme and how to book,
see Carcaixent.
