Towns of Valencia – Vilafames

The medieval Spanish town of Vilafames climbs a hill to its restored Moorish castle some 25 kilometres north of Castellon de la Plana in the region of Valencia. The old upper part of the town is a maze of narrow streets and alleys, lined with white-washed houses. Apart from the castle which offers a fine panorama of the area, you can visit the museum of contemporary art, with works by such artists as Miro, situated within a fifteenth century palace in the town, you could also visit the 18th century Iglesia de la Asunción church.
