From Utiel we travel to Requena (10kms away). Here we visit one of the oldest cities in the Valencia Region. The first origins of the city date from the 7th century before Chr.
Maybe the most touristic part of the city is the Old Town (Barrio de la Villa - Old Town quarter). Requena was a frontier city in the 13th century between Castilla and Valencia. The Cathedral, the narrow streets, the charming and old houses, and the beautiful squares are perfect places to relax and feel the history of interior Valencia.
Silk was the former financial motor of the city and nowadays it is wine. A city and an appellation of origin (Utiel-Requena) which exports every year more than 15 million liters and more than 20 million bottles around the world
