Ontinyent, Valencia, Spain

Ontinyent is town in the Vall d’Albaida areas of the Comunidad Valenciana, Spain. It is situated on the right bank of the river Clariano, a sub-tributary of the Júcar, and on the Xàtiva–Villena railway.

Ontinyent is 360m above sea level, in the southwest of the valley surrounded by mountains, in the province of Valencia. This area forms the Val d’albaida, of which Ontinyent is the capital. At the moment 32,000 people live in the municipality.

Ontinyent is a medieval town built around the cliff like banks of the river Clariano. The church of Santa Maria was erected over the older Moorish mosque, and there are numerous examples of this ancient heritage throughout this old town. The new section of town boasts every modern amenity and because of the abundance of clean fast flowing water, the town is affluent and sophisticated without the crowds and fast food outlets found in tourist areas of Spain.

There is a parish church remarkable for its lofty square tower, and a palace of the dukes of Almodòver. There is a large modern suburb outside the old town, which was formerly a walled city; some vestiges of the ramparts still remain. Linen and woollen cloth, paper, brandy, furniture and earthenware are manufactured; and there is some trade in cereals, wine and oil.

There is excellent communication with Valencia (airport), 45 minutes along the A7 interior motorway. Alicante (airport), 60 minutes along the new A36, and Gandia on the coast, 30minutes along the new CV60.
