Sot de Ferrer

Sot de Ferrer

Founded in the 14th century, on top of Arabic villages. Iberian remains also exist in the district, in the sites of Rochina, Marín and Alto de la Fuente. Ancient burial grounds have also been found in Monte Hoyo.


Agriculture and services are the key elements of Sot de Ferrer's economy. Agricultural products are split into irrigation crops, such as orange, medlar, persimmon and cherry trees, and rainfed crops, such as almonds, olives and carobs. The population increases to around 1,200-1,500 inhabitants in summer, due to the abundance of second homes.

What to see

Stroll through the streets to the El Señor palace (14th-century) and the parish church (18th-century), in the church square. Make your way out of the village centre, over to the impressive calvary (19th-century) and the San Antonio de Padua hermitage (17th-century).


Set between the Espadán mountains to the north and the foothills of the Sierra Calderona to the south, the district is split in two by the valley of the river Palancia, which snakes around the old town, from the northeast to the east. It has a mild climate and an average elevation of 230 m.
