Tavernes de la Valldigna (in castillian spanish, Tabernes de Valldigna) is a coastal town in the comarca of La Safor in Valencia province.
it lies 50 km south of Valencia and has 6 km of coastline, where like many coastal towns it has a separate enclave "Playa de Tavernes de la Valldigna"; the beach area, boasting one of the best of the areas beaches, is very much a Spanish resort and consequently it is packed in Summer and almost deserted in Winter.
The surrounding scenery has marked contrast between the vast plains, mostly covered by orange groves and the steep mountains, which provide a special microclimate and constitute a barrier that delimits the Vall de Tavernes with respect to the neighbouring region of Ribera Alta.
There are several natural beauty spots close to the town including the Serra de les Agulles, a mountain range with peaks as high as 600 m, El Racó de Joana, a stunning area close to the San Lorenzo chapel and El Clot de la Font, a natural spring, perfect for spending a day surrounded by nature.
The town of Tavernes boasts an important historical heritage and a stroll around its traditional streets or a visit to one of the town’s monuments is most worthwhile
El Calvario or the Calvary chapel is one of the best preserved in the Valencian community. It can be reached from a pathway dotted with shrines that depict the Passion of Christ. The San Lorenzo hermitage and the Valldigna lookout are well worth visiting. From here there is a splendid view of the coast from Denia to Cullera.
The Torre de la Vall, built in the 16th Century, is one of the most important lookout towers built on the Mediterranean Coast.
Close by to Tavernes is Simat de la Valldigna with it's beautifully restored Monastery which is well worth visiting.
