Bocairent hotels are well-equipt and charming
Bocairent is a small town in the Vall d’Albaida comarca of the Valencian Community in Spain. The town has been nicknamed “Town in the Rock”, as many of the houses were excavated from the surrounding rock on the hill top in the Sierra Mariola Mountains. The hill is peppered with caves showing the occupation of its prehistoric residents and were referred to as “beehives” during the Moorish occupation. The town also shows evidence of its occupation by the Romans, and there are several excellent hotels in Bocairent to explore it all. The town’s economy was previously based entirely on the blanket and fabric industry but is becoming more diversified in recent years.
