INTRODUCTION

Sagunto is a major monumental ensemble. The castle of Sagunto (or alcazaba) is a huge and complex defensive system more than 1km long which surrounds the mountain and overlooks the city.

The Roman theatre is also one of the city’s landmarks. It was excavated in the hillside of the mountain where the castle meets the plain. It was declared a National Monument in 1896.

The subterranean river of the Grutas de San José (San José Caves), located in the near village of Vall d´Uixò, flows along a natural cave of incomparable beauty, and it is the longest subterranean navigable river in Europe.

It flows quietly into the depths of the cave and one can observe the unique rock formations, shaped by the water along thousands of years.
