The Church of Saint Michael (16th century), constructed atop a mosque, lies in the village centre. There are also numerous beautiful natural sites in the municipality, such as the source of River “dels Ulls”, located in the “els Ullals” area.
The Festivity of the Immaculate Conception, the Corpus Christi, the bonfires of Saint Anthony the Abbott and the “Fallas” Week are some of the town’s most notable festivities. However, those which stand out due to their religious fervour are the festivities held in honour of the patron saint, the Holy Christ of Masalavés.
