Morella is an extraordinary city on a mountain a couple of hours north of Valencia, Spain. While it is on the northern tip of the Land of Valencia, it is also the capital of the district of Els Ports. A trip there offers an historic aqueduct, fortress, castle, convent, cloister and basilica as well as the beauty of everyday life.
