Rincones con encanto: Alpuente

La semana pasada en nuestra sección “rincones con encanto” nos adentramos en el municipio de Font de la Figuera. Esta vez es el turno de la localidad valenciana de Alpuente, donde el domingo 13 de diciembre tendrá lugar la festividad de Santa Lucia en las que cada aldea celebra el festejo con verbenas, chocolatadas, procesiones, juegos infantiles y un largo etcétera.

Alpuente es un municipio valenciano que forma parte de la comarca de Los Serranos. Esta compuesto por diferentes aldeas, algunas de ellas están deshabilitadas (La Hortichuela, El Chopo, Berandía, Benacatácera, Vizcota, Cañada Seca, Pozo Marín), una de ellas se usa como segunda residencia (La Carrasca) y diez están habilitadas durante todo el año, al igual que las que forman la Villa (La Almeza, Baldovar, Campo de Abajo, Campo de Arriba, La Canaleja, El Collado, Corcolilla, La Cuevarruz,  Las Eras, El Hontanar y La Torre).

En el siglo XIX como consecuencia de las guerras Carlistas sus dos puentes (Alpuente y El Poyo) quedaron destruidos. Sin embargo, pese a perder parte de su arquitectura aún se conserva gran parte de sus monumentos como sus murallas, los castillos de Alpuente y del Poyo, la ermita de Santa Bárbara donde se exponen fósiles de dinosaurios encontrados en la localidad, el acueducto de Los Arcos de Alpuente o cuatro yacimientos icnológicos, entre otras maravillas. Para aquellos que lo desconozcáis, la icnología es el estudio de las huellas fósiles.

Es el lugar ideal para los amantes del deporte y de la naturaleza ya que en este pueblo situado a 96km de la capital ofrece una amplia gama de rutas tanto de senderismo como cicloturismo e incluso para paseos a caballo. Entre las rutas a pie cabe destacar “La Escarigüela” o “Las Travinas”, entre otras. El tour por Las Aldeas se puede hacer tanto andando como en bici de montaña.


Si visitas Alpuente no puedes irte sin antes probar su gastronomía basada en productos agrícolas y ganaderos de la zona. Entre sus especialidades destacan: el embutido y las carnes de la orza, la olla de pueblo, los gazpachos, las gachas, las migas, la caldereta, el puchero, y los diferentes guisos de cordero. Los amantes del buen vino encontrarán el “Gran Turia” (vino blanco elaborado con uva merseguera), vino rosado y el vino tinto “Castillo de Alpuente”. Los más golosos podrán degustar magdalenas, rollicos de anís, tortas de azúcar o rosegones, entre otras delicias artesanas.

  6. Have you considered ending up being an internet marketing professional but believe you require a ton of money?
    Well, to be totally sincere with you, absolutely nothing might be additionally from the fact.

    There are so many ways to market for low or totally free expenses.

    Some new online marketers think they need a couple of thousand dollars a month to pour into advertising till they learn other opportunities.
    We are in a period that you can reach 50 billion individuals
    with a click of button on the Internet. You can market on web sites, send out emails, social networking websites, therefore

    Constantly strategy to send more than one video if
    you want to make your video marketing project a success.
    This is since it will not be simple for one video to stand out from all of the thousands of videos that
    have been downloaded. If you wish to protrude from the crowd,
    you require to develop a lot of videos that target the very
    same audience.

    I have been in this business for some time and do need to say I have actually built some great relationships.
    These relationships are with a few of the highest caliber, intelligent, and friendly individuals you will ever meet.
    I currently have buddies all over the world that I can talk to on Skype (likewise totally free) whenever I desire.
    While you may have a home Web business, it’s not such as burying yourself
    in a cave and never ever talking to any individual ever once again. My difficulty to you is to go make 30 pals a day and present
    yourself, strike up a discussion, and make
    it count. Do something about it starting now!
    I don’t indicate to badger this particular business, which
    is why I’m not discussing them by name or offering you
    adequate info to make an enlightened guess.
    Due to the fact that this problem affects companies
    and companies of all shapes and sizes, that’s. I’ve seen so
    many circumstances when companies jumped out with an effective air travel
    of marketing messages, only to find that the folks who really needed to provide on those messages just weren’t all set to handle the responses.

    Another kind of opportunity to understand, due to the
    fact that you will certainly be encountering it increasingly more, is
    the one linked in some method to advertising. You might have currently come across web sites rewarding you in some method to view advertisements, read
    emails, click banners or complete studies or offers.

    Why to choose a market instead of product? The reason being quite internet marketing
    clear that you just want to put more devices in your pipeline.
    Itis very important to pick a market which fits you. You have to get hold of
    comprehensive details about it.
    The 2nd thing to do is to get into the routine
    of pinging your blog site to the various directories each
    time you make an update. I make use of 2 services to do
    this. One is Pingomatic and the other is King Ping.

    The reason I utilize 2 is since every as soon as in a while, among them is down.
    There are numerous other services, however I find these 2 to be the
    most trustworthy and get the best results.
    Market. This is where online marketing is available in. Current data proves that advertising online produces more results than the standard billboards or posters.
    Look for web marketing ideas or complimentary lessons
    on advertising, then plan with your business partners.
    Online marketing is how you broadcast to the world that
    your business is up and running. These techniques consist of utilizing social networking websites and social bookmarking to get the word out,
    tagging and commenting on other sites and forums connected to your
    business, or connecting back to your site anywhere
    you go online. Trust that it will certainly spread like wildfire through the internet when you begin to
    advertise. If you have the confidence and heart it takes to begin an online company, you simply might end up becoming an online multi-millionaire.
