Details

The best view of Sorbas, with its houses clinging to the edge of a deep ravine looking down on the Rio de Aguas, is from the main road to the east of the town. Likewise, from vantage points in the town, you can see the equally amazing desert area, where erosion has created a strange moonscape of flat-topped cones and gorges.

The white-walled church of Santa Maria has a 16th century nave with Mudejas woodwork, its gable end was built between 1765 and 1768 and the main door is 19th century. San Roque and San Jose, patron saints of Sorbas, guard the corners of the bell-tower, with the help of Saint Peter and Saint Paul. Next to the church is the town hall and a 17th century mansion thought to have belonged to the Duke of Alba.

Sorbas is known for its traditional pottery, an old Moorish oven is used for firing pottery. Ceramics are sold from the workshops in the Barrio de las Alfarerias. In the central square a market is held every Thursday. Outside the town, farmhouses have been restored to provide accommodation for visitors to the Karst and Yesos Natural Park, where a big attraction is the caves, carved by water erosion, with chasms, stalactites and stalagmites, they stretch for several kilometres. It is one of the largest cave networks in Europe, over 1,500 have been mapped in a 12km area. There are guided visits in the summer.
