The agriculture has been the basis of the Valencian economy for centuries, combining different crops in each historical moment. But, certainly, one of them has been the key to development of the Valencian countryside in the last two centuries: Orange and its varieties. This culture has transformed the territory, industry and to many towns and cities.
This Orange Tour take you a guided tour along quiet farm roads where you will discover the history of the crop, the cultivation of orange trees, the properties of the orange and the orange blossom and the architecture related to this crop . Also we will know the manufacturing process by a visit to a cooperative of citrus.
