Our house is located on the left bank of the Turia River on its way through the town of Casas Bajas, founded in the mid-nineteenth century, no longer a village dependent on the town of Ademuz.
The most representative building is the parish church of El Salvador, from the early 19th century. With a restored organ, it's a pleasant visit to learn our history. It’s also important the old mill and some buckets where wine was made, which are still preserved.
The Rincón de Ademuz, is located between three provinces: Valencia, Cuenca and Teruel. It's a region of 7 towns and 11 villages irrigated by the Turia River. These lands were reconquered by Pedro II of Aragon, in 1210 and constitute one of the oldest regions of those that today belong to the Valencian Community.
It is worth visiting all its towns, villages and spots, with its own personality and particularities, from the medieval aroma of Castielfabib to the rural authenticity of villages like Sesga, with electric light for only 20 years.
