Puzol

Puzol


Puzol has two churches, one older than the other: Church of Santos Juanes (17th century) and the more modern Church of Santa Marta (20th century) in the Hostalets area. Today, only the garden walls of the Bishop’s Palace remain, which was promoted by the Viceroy San Juan de Ribera. It is still attached to a house in the town, a Medieval Tower. A little spot with a unique charm that stands out is the gateway to the Heart of Jesus. The most prominent natural beauty spots are the Costera mountain, the Cabeçol and l’Espartal.

The ‘olla de Nadal’ and the ‘sopa bruta’ (giblet soup and stew) are the most renowned dishes of the local gastronomy, alongside the paella. Rabbit with tomato is very typical during festivals. Sweets, such as the ‘brazo de gitano’ and the ‘pastís blanc’ are very highly regarded.

From the 1st to the 9th of September festivals for the patron saints are celebrated in honour of the Virgin at the foot of the Cross, with religious ceremonies, dawns, fireworks, bulls, festivities etc. On the 6th of September, the popular ‘Entrà de la murta’ is a highlight, along with the ‘tabal i dolçaina’ which marks the beginning of the festivities on horseback.
