Villarreal

Travel Guide

Officially Vila-real in Valencian, Villarreal is an important Mediterranean city with over 700 years of history that stands out for its rich cultural heritage.

Founded in 1274 to secure the Reconquista, Villarreal was an important city during the Kingdom of Aragon and preserves many of its historical features. Spend your holidays in Villarreal and discover its medieval remains, from the porticoed Plaza de la Vila and the medieval walls, to the Municipal Historical Archive, the 18th-century Santa Quiteria Bridge over the River Mijares, and the Motxa Tower, the only remaining one of the four defensive towers.

Villarreal has always been an agricultural city, as illustrated by the orange groves and the irrigation systems and canals. However, nowadays it also specialises in the tile industry, producing quality paving and ceramics, which has set the city on the map internationally. What’s more, economic development has been made possible as the city is well connected by road with the AP-7 and A-7 motorways, by train with commuter and long-distance service, and by plane, thanks to the Manises airport in Valencia, only 43 miles away.

Villarreal is also a city of festivities and traditions. Book a cheap holiday in Villarreal and discover the foundational festivities, held in February, which pay homage to the city’s founder King James I of Aragon with cultural events and a picturesque medieval market. Similarly, check out the festivities for its patron saints, San Pascual Baylón in May and the Virgen de Gracia in September, or the traditional Nit de Xulla with the bonfires on which the locals prepare a typical range of grilled meat, giving the festivity its name. What’s more, the city is also known for football, in particular for Villarreal CF football club. Check out package holidays in Villarreal and get your tickets to see a game at El Madrigal: you’re sure to enjoy it just as much as local fans.

The main means of transport are bus and train, so getting around will be easy. What’s more, with an average temperature around 18°C, Villarreal offers great Mediterranean weather. Don’t miss the fantastic holiday deals to Villarreal and soak up fiesta and tradition in equal measure.
