CHELVA, IS A TRADITIONAL VILLAGE AND AUTHENTIC RESPECTING ALL ITS SIGNS OF IDENTITY
All cultures, have been attracted by the hydraulic wealth of this land, but were the Arabs, who in the 9th century, settled in this town, making it one of the most important in the province of Valencia at the time. Settled in the area of the Plaza Mayor, (20 metres from Pajuzo Rural House), built the Alcazar, whose silhouette can still be seen from the exit of the population towards Tuéjar. Neighborhoods such as Benacacira and the suburb, still retain the Muslim maze-like layout, with its atzucats alleys and arcades. The Christians in the 13th century, settled in the Moorish quarter, and the potteries. Important monuments include the Church of our Lady of the angels, turret, the sanctuary of the Virgen del Remedio, the convent of San Francisco, the Vizcondal Palace, the Hermitage of the Holy Cross, (old mosque of Benaeça), the Council of the town, and the Roman aqueduct of the Peña Cortada.
