Enjoy Yecla

Just right on the high plateau, Yecla shows its visitors a combination of unique beauty among stone landscapes, olive trees, cereal crops and vineyards.

Called noble, loyal and faithful land by Philip V in 1707, Yecla was born and developed around wine and furniture manufacture. Its current industrial and modern environment blends with its heritage and traditions, which makes it a city worth visiting and enjoying.

Yecla.

Noble, loyal and faithful.

Cultural Heritage

A journey into the past

Crowned by the Castle, a fortified enclosure of Muslim origin (10th century), and the Castle Virgin Sanctuary, Yecla has some of the least usual monuments in the Region of Murcia.

Next, we will show you some points of interest that will surely make you fall in love with.

 

Archpriest Basilica of the Immaculate Conception

Also called New Church, it was built between 1775 and 1868 under the Neo-classical principles. We highlight its arched dome whose exterior, decorated with spiral designs of blue and white glazed roof tiles, makes it the most representative symbol of the city.

 

Asunción Church or Old Church

This civil monument of Gothic and Renaissance style is located in the heart of the old town, between the Town Hall and the Castle Sanctuary. Inside, you can find the Museo de Semana Santa (Holy Week Museum), certainly another monument of great beauty worth visiting.

 

The Church of San Francisco and the Hermitage of San Roque

These monuments hold secrets and peculiarities that you can only discover if you visit them.

Visiting museums

Between art and history

Yecla offers you six museums where you can travel back in time.

 

Municipal Archaeological Museum

In this museum there are 4 different periods that range from Prehistory, the Iberic Culture, the Romanisation to the Middle Ages. It also hosts a piece of great value: Adriano’s bust; a first-level sculpture regarding the quality of its sculpturing and its excellent conservation. You can also find out firsthand the project “Yecla. Yesterday and today”, which holds a free access photographic archive in which the people of the town themselves have provided photos from before 1975.

Rural tourism

Through time and rocks
Arabí Mountain

In Yecla you will find the magic mountain or Arabí Mountain, a sacred place for foreigners that comprises several prehistoric sites. A big eroded stone structure stands out as time has caused holes, caves and honeycomb-shaped or alveolar surfaces.

 

Caves and nature

 

In Yecla you can find a lot of caves or chasms such as the treasure cave, a very small one where only the bravest dare to go in to find the “treasure” that is said to be inside. It is worth walking through these beautiful slopes to find cave paintings at the Visera Rocks and Mediodía Caves, as well as the petroglyphs of Arabilejo hill.
