Utiel

Utiel

Beneath the narrow streets of the medieval old town of Utiel there is an underground city of tunnels and cellars under the houses, where the wine vats were kept. Because Utiel has always been a land of wine.

From a distance, the tower of the beautiful Gothic church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción dominates the city at its feet. To one side, the sober building of the Town Hall forms the square that was the nerve centre of the medieval town with its narrow alleys around Calle Real and Calle Santa María, where traditional small shops still survive. In Calle del Cebo, the former convent of the Mercedarian order is now the Colegio de las Monjas. Nearby, el Museo de la Miel y la Cera displays a unique press used to extract honey and wax from the combs, and the Museo Municipal in the Casa Alamanzón. The entire underground of the old town is crisscrossed by tunnels, which were once used as cellars and can be visited. But it is in the Museo de la Vid y el Vino, in front of the train station that ignited the economic take-off of the town in the 20th century, where the true vocation of Utiel is spoken of.

Utiel is the head of the municipality that presides over five villages: Las CasasLos CorralesLas CuevasLa Torre and Estenas, probably settlements of Iberian or Roman origin. Like them, Utiel celebrates San Antón in January, the carnivals, Easter and San Isidro, the patron saint of farmers, in May. But the big event is in September, during the Feria de la Vendimia. This event attracts the whole region and begins with the descent of the Virgen del Remedio to the town.
