Heritage

Los Santos Reyes Church.

This church is listed as of Local Relevance. It is a Baroque style building, originally from the 17th century. It is located in an old mosque, of which the bell tower still remains. Inside, it is decorated in neoclassical style.

Pozo de la Nieve.

This building dates back to the 17th century. It is a deposit of snow that served to preserve food, a technique already used by the Muslims, mainly composed of an underground deposit excavation covered with a false masonry vault. The interior structure has access to different levels that facilitated access during the tasks of gathering and emptying the deposit. It is one of the few buildings of these characteristics conserved in an urban centre.

The old quarter.

Calle del Arco: This is a must because here we find the only vestige of medieval architecture that still remains in the town. On Calle Mayor, as well as on Bernardo Juan Street, you can admire some stately houses from the 19th century. In Virgen del Rosario street, the building of the old laundry and slaughterhouse has been rehabilitated and converted into a multipurpose room where cultural activities take place. From the park of Blasco Ibáñez, you can observe panoramic views of the region and the Sierra del Ave.

Nature

Tabarla natural park.

Declared a Municipal Natural Park in 2007, the enclave of Tabarla corresponds to a section of the river Magro and its riverbank, located 19 km away from the town. Its location forms a beautiful part of the middle river valley, where the course of the river and the forest formations of the riverside create an environment of undoubted visual appeal. The isolation of the place, which can only be traversed through a path, adds interest to the place, which is a must visit for all those who love hiking.

Las Palomas Cave.

Las Palomas (pigeons) Cave is a natural space whose main attraction is a singular waterfall of approximately 20 meters high that forms naturally when it rains. It is located just 5 km from the town. In recent times this natural space has been provided with a recreational area composed of two camping areas and different facilities such as paella cookers and other services.

PRV-148.

The northwest trail Yátova Alto del Cerro links with GR-7 and runs through the Pardenillas mountains to the Mijares Valley.

PRV-115.

A southeast path, it runs along the southern edge of the municipality, to the Sierra Martés, and serves as a link between GR7 and the village. You will walk along the Forata Reservoir, and can reach the shelter of the Manquillo in the Sierra Martés, which also connects with the path of great route GR7, but by the south zone. The path is of medium difficulty because of its length and irregularities but it does not require special equipment or training. You will need to bring water.

Historia

Yátova es una localidad y un municipio de la Comunidad Valenciana, España. Está situado en la provincia de Valencia, en la comarca de la Hoya de Buñol.

El topónimo Yátova es una evolución del nombre del municipio que aparece consignado en el Llibre del Repartiment de Valencia, Átava. El lugar también recibió, al parecer, el nombre de Safoya hasta la expulsión de los moriscos. El casco urbano de Yátova se ubica a 420 msnm. El término es muy montañoso, siendo sus alturas más elevadas la Sierra Martés (1085 msnm) y el Cerro del Asno (881 msnm).

El pueblo de Yátova se ha construido en un pequeño cerro en torno a la iglesia, su término ha estado poblado desde tiempos remotos, por diferentes culturas con un enterramiento neolítico, en la cueva caliente.

Encontrando restos de la edad de bronce en el Motrotón o el valle Mijares. El más espectacular por la importancia de hallazgos es el de la Sierra Martés, de la edad de hierro, cultura ibérica. También existen restos de la época Romana, en la zona del Partidor o en el cerro del Mulet. De la época musulmana quedan numerosos restos en la toponimia como Cueva Mora, Alberca, etc. O la arquitectura en el casco viejo con sus típicas casas moriscas. Más relevante es el actual campanario, antes mezquita musulmana.

Mucho ha llovido

La conquista cristiana, termina con la expulsión de los moriscos en 1609 y la otorgación de la carta Puebla. Destacar su repoblación con tan solo 16 personas, mucho ha llovido desde entonces y mucho más nos dejamos por contar, hasta los días de hoy con sus poco más de 2.000 habitantes.
