The legacy of our ancestors
“Bicorp stands on a small hill surrounded by a meander that forms the Barranco Moreno. It has important deposits of Rock Art, natural places of great beauty and crystalline water.
It is very enriching to take a walk through its urban centre of Muslim origin, especially around the church of San Juan Evangelista from the 16th-18th century. The remains of the palace of the Lords of Bicorp, with its carved stone facade in the Renaissance style, presided over by the heraldic coat of arms of the Bicorp barons, are in the same chronology.
The popular festivities are held from August 15 to 18, where street parties, parades and Moors and Christians parades invade the streets. The first weekend in May is dedicated to the patron saint’s fiestas in honour of the Holy Cross and the blessing of the scrolls, declared to be of tourist interest in 2019.
To get your strength back, there is nothing better than enjoying the rich local gastronomy based on grilled meats, gazpacho with game, mojetearriero, griñones, etc. Other culinary delights are the baked rice and the rice made with aromatic herbs from the mountains. You should not leave the municipality without buying traditional products such as honey or olive oil, typical sweets and sausages in local establishments.
The municipality of Bicorp is characterized by a mountainous relief of abrupt and steep forms, crossed by deep ravines that form grinders like the one in Bicorp. These are places of great beauty that can be explored on foot or by bicycle through its network of trails and mountain biking. The natural and historical heritage is completed with the set of rock art shelters declared World Heritage by UNESCO, where the caves of La Araña stand out especially, which has its starting point and interpretation in the Ecomuseum of Bicorp.”
