TORREBAJA

Its terrain is relatively hilly, as it lies in the Turia valley. It is surrounded by high mountains, especially to the east, where we find the foothills of the Sierra de Javalambre and Sierra de Tortajada ranges. The rivers Túria and Ebrón rivers run through the municipality.

Torrebaja is reached from Ademuz via the N-330, direction Teruel. It lies about 7 km distant. The CN-420 crosses the village centre, at kilometre 509, while the 330, following its new alternative route from Manzaneruela (Cuenca) to Torrebaja, passes in front of the village along the slopes of the mountains that make up the left bank of the River Turia.

Local delicacies include pork and lamb, artisan sausages and cured ham. Typical local dishes include stew, “arroz empedrado” and “gachas”. Local sweets include apple pie, quince and almond cake.
