Alcublas is located 50 kilometres to the northwest of Valencia. Most of the municipality is mountainous, although there are also areas dedicated to dryland crops, such as almonds and grapes. The village has a rich architectural heritage, as demonstrated by its buildings, mills, hermitages, ice houses, etc. Its social heritage is represented by its rich cuisine and its festivities. The name of Alcublas is Arabic and means “popular administration”, indicating that the village originally consisted of several groups of hamlets. The earliest historical reference to the town is the Royal Charter granted by King James I of Aragon in Lleida, on 10th April, 1257, by virtue of which he ceded the villages to Teresa Gil de Vidaura in the kingdom of Valencia, noting their limits with the municipalities of Liria, Andilla, Bejis, Jérica and Altura.
