Since ancient times, the Camp de Morvedre has been a natural crossroads that connects Aragón and the Basque Country with the Mediterranean along natural corridors. It is also located on the south-north axis that connects Valencia with Catalonia and France. Nowadays, it continues to be a hugely important communication and logistics hub in Spain. The ancient axes have been turned into motorways and railway lines. As a result of these developments, a powerful industrial hub and a large commercial port emerged in Puerto de Sagunto.
Its geography is defined by the coastline of Mediterranean beaches, the Sierra Calderona, the Palancia River and the valleys and plains of fertile land and marshes. Despite being a relatively small territory, it boasts an impressive variety of typically Mediterranean landscapes.
The Camp de Morvedre occupies the northernmost sector of the province. The Palancia River is its central axis. This is flanked by the Sierra Calderona, which is the natural lung for local inhabitants. Between the mountains and the coastline lies a forest of orange trees, extending practically all the way to the beaches. The region boasts an impressive diversity of natural features: sandy beaches sandwiched between crystal clear waters and mountainous landscapes; vast pine forests with natural viewpoints; monasteries in the very heart of the Sierra (Santo Espíritu in Gilet); revered mountains such as Mount Garbí; mountain villages; fresh water springs; and extraordinary Roman remains such as Sagunto Castle. The Camp de Morvedre also offers a fantastic range of restaurants and accommodation options, making it a tourist region par excellence.
