The village lies 12 km from Valencia, at an average altitude of 8 m above sea level: two geographic factors that have influenced the evolution of Silla. On the one hand, the characteristics of the weather and the productive land and, on the other, its privileged situation between a crossroads and its proximity to the Albufera Lake.
The 18th century Church of Our Lady of the Angels (the façade of which has been recently lit) is the village’s most prominent monument. A perfectly preserved Muslim tower, which is attached to the Town Hall, is the village’s most prominent civil monument. This tower formed part of a Muslim castle that used to stand in Silla. Only the defence tower remains: together with others such as the Espioca and Benifaió towers, formed a defensive ring around the city of Valencia. Mas de Baix, and the Albufera port, are the most important and interesting natural sites.
