About us

Welcome to the Chulilla website, a beautiful town located in the region of Los Serranos, in the province of Valencia, Spain. In this section ‘About Us’, we want to introduce you to our community and its history. It should be noted that this is not an official page and we have no relationship with the Chulilla Town Council.
My name is Carlos Fabuel Cava and I have all 8 surnames from Chulilla. As far back as my lineage goes (great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents), they are all from Chulilla. I started this website in the early 21st century as a technical exercise in web programming and, of course, to introduce my town to the world.
Now I work professionally in this field, and this website contributed to it.
This is a collaborative page. Several people have sent texts to be published. If you want to collaborate, send the text to chulillaweb[@]gmail.com and if it provides relevant information for Chulilla, it will be published with reference to your name or association.
Chulilla is a town of Arab origin, although there are much older settlements both in the castle hill and throughout the municipal area. It is located in the basin of the Turia River (Guadalaviar). Its narrow streets, white houses, and medieval castle are some of the features that make it a desired destination for tourists from all over the world. The town is surrounded by an impressive natural landscape, with mountains and cliffs (vertical precipice in Aragonese) of limestone that attract climbers and hikers from all over the world.
The history of Chulilla dates back to the Roman era, even to the Paleolithic, although it was the Arabs who built the castle and developed agriculture in the area. During the Middle Ages, the town was part of the Kingdom of Valencia. In the 19th century, Chulilla’s economy was based on agriculture and livestock, activities that have been gradually updated. For example, cereal crops are no longer grown and there are fewer and fewer vineyards. Many dry fields are now irrigated. It should be noted the great boom in tourism since the late 20th century.
