Alquézar, castle, collegiate church and medieval villa perch proudly above the River Vero canyon, in wildly beautiful surroundings that form part of the Sierra de Guara Mountains and Canyons National Park and the River Vero Cultural Park.
The unique landscape reflects a world of rock and water and hides deep chasms that are home to a variety of flora and fauna. Towers and fortified walls; chapels and traditional architecture; ice wells and cave paintings; legends of maidens, wanderers and Moorish kings; hiking routes, rock climbing and adventure sports and the mythical descent of the River Vero are all to be found in and around Alquézar.
Alquézar celebrates a Crafts Fair on the last sunday of July.
Its summer fiestas are held on the 12th of August in honour of San Hipólito.
