Lliria & L´Eliana are ancient cities which lies 30 minutes inland from the coastal city of Valencia, and forms one of the main historical cities of the region. Numerous civilisations throughout the ages have left their mark: the Iberians called this place Edeta; the Romans left temples and pools, while the Moors left baths and Mosques. You can walk in their footsteps at various places throughout the town. Follow the Moors to the Banos Arabes, 12th century Arabian baths once visited by devout Muslims to purify themselves before prayer or trail the Iberians to Poblado Iberico Edeta, an ancient Iberian ruin where the curious gather to view fragments of the past, from old houses, to paintings, inscriptions and pottery.
These days, the city is still a melting pot of rich culture, and is particularly famed for its music – Lliria is known as the ‘city of music’ and has two schools of music and two orchestras to prove it, not to mention playing host to various music festivals throughout the year.
It’s not just music though; the city also enjoys an equally rich gastronomy. Rice is a staple and appears in many dishes in all imaginable varieties, locally reared and wild meat finds their way into delicious sausages and dishes such as meat paella, and traditionally made cakes and pastries mark the changing seasons.
