IN OJÉN YOU CANNOT MISS

MONUMENTS

Water is one of the symbols of Ojen, and strolling through the center of town, you will find the Fountain of Chorros. Of the five pipes of this fountain, water flows over a century ago, particularly since 1905.

To learn more about the production and the tradition of some of its leading products, recommend you to visit the Oil Mill Museum, which exhibits original machinery used for grinding olives and art exhibitions; and the Wine Museum, housed in an old schnapps distillery.

Lovers of history and architecture will enjoy the historical sites, monuments of heritage value and a path of clear Moorish reminiscence that you will find on your way through Ojen. In this sense, the parish church of Our Lady of the Incarnation, built on an ancient mosque in the XVI century preserves the image of San Dionisio Areopagita. From its original construction, its minaret that today functions as the bell tower is still preserved.

Finally, recommend you to visit the Caves of Ojen. These karstic natural monuments have been linked to village life for centuries. Although in the beginning, they were used as places of refuge for animals and people, today, they are part of a garden in which the acts, concerts and events are often held.
