Tour of the orange in Castellon
Guided and themed tour through the orange groves of Castellón, where you will be able to see and taste different types of oranges and mandarins that exist in the region, how they are worked in the fields and how they are harvested.
A dynamic and fun route that allows the traveller, as well as following the whole process that takes the orange or mandarin from the origin of the tree to their homes, to enter into the long journey it makes to sweeten our palates. Accompanied at all times by specialised guides who will introduce you to the history and life of one of the most consumed fruits in the world, showing you step by step the whole process until they reach our homes. We will enter "El Más dels Doblons", a traditional farmhouse with more than 30,000 m2 divided between orange groves, ancient olive trees, vineyards, gardens and rooms dedicated to those elements that constitute and identify the life of the Masoveros Castellonenses between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries. This visit includes gastronomic and ethnological contents, nature and tradition.
