Cortes de Pallás is a municipality in the comarca of Valle de Ayora in the province of Valencia, Spain. Counting a population of 1.054 inhabitants.(ENI 2011).

The most isolated of the settlements in the Valle de Ayora comarca, and it is perhaps precisely because of this - and its many resources - that it is such an attractive place with interesting architecture and a cultural heritage that includes the ruins of four fortifications, among other things. It is famed for the clean, crystal-clear waters of the navigable River Júcar, which flows through the town, and it is also blessed by the presence of various picturesque hamlets of Castilblanques: El Oro, La Cabezuela, Los Herreros, Otonel Venta de Gaeta y Viñuelas. Each of which oozes charm and offers great food and drink.

Theagricultural economy is based mainly on the production of olives and almonds, and to a lesser extent vineyards; livestock is principally goats and sheep. Of special mention is bee-keeping (honey production). However, the principal economy is from the generation of electricity by Iberdrola.
