From the Sierra de la Bicuerca, a sea of almond trees stretches westward to the town, with the unmistakable sturdiness of the tower of the Church of Santiago Apóstol. A town with Iberian or Roman roots, founded on the banks of a water spring. The water continues to flow from the Concejo and Enrique Pedrón fountains, and allowed the construction of a public washing place which has been restored and can be visited. The memory of the village is still alive in the Colección Museográfica Vida Rural, where everyday objects and tools were kept until the last century.

Fuenterrobles attracts cyclists, walkers and nature lovers. There are mountain bike and trekking routes in the surroundings of La Bicuerca, with landmarks such as the Telegraph Tower. The section of the Camino de Santiago that links Valencia and Cuenca borders the mountains and offers less difficulty. Likewise, the singular and monumental trees of the municipality have been catalogued in the surroundings for their protection and enjoyment by residents and visitors.

In February, the Candelaria, the town's patron saint, is celebrated, and in mid-August the patron saint's festival in honour of Santiago. On the second Sunday in May, the pilgrimage to the Cueva Santa is held, a traditional place of pilgrimage in the Hoces del Cabriel.
