The gastronomy of Cullera represents one of the biggest tourist attractions of the municipality. It has its roots in the KM0 gastronomy, a commitment to the proximity products to our sea and our rice fields.
The long gastronomic tradition of the city is reflected in the innumerable offer of restaurants that offer local, national and international cuisine, based on first class KM0 products, fish and seafood, fruits and vegetables, as well as the ubiquitous rice, raw materials found in our own vegetable gardens, orchards and fish market.
This is how the recipe of Paella de Cullera was born, thanks to the rice and seafood tradition of the city, by the hand of the prestigious gastronome Salvador Gascón, father of the Valencian gastronomy and winner of the National Tourism Award.
Cullera tastes like the Mediterranean, culinary tradition, rice, fish and game. You can enjoy a wide range of gastronomic possibilities all year round.
From the mountain viewpoints of Cullera, you can contemplate one of the natural spectacles with the greatest visual impact, the variation of colour of the rice fields depending on the season, which vary from green in summer, to gold in September and blue in winter. In the last one, we can find the fields flooded and the rice fields covered with water.
Therefore, we see how the landscape changes constantly, each scenery with its special touch and charm. Along this privileged spot there are several signposted routes that give the visitor the opportunity to go into the rice fields, as well as into the orange orchards and vegetable fields both on foot or by bicycle.
Its 15km of fine sand offers visitors all kinds of environments on its eleven wonderful beaches. Not forgetting that the northern part of the municipality is integrated in the Albufera Natural Park.
Cullera also has the only river port on the Spanish Mediterranean coast where you’ll have the chance to walk around and witness the spectacular sunsets over the river Júcar and the fishing boats moored there.
For any gastronomy lover it is a privilege to buy fresh fish immediately after its auction at the fish market.
In addition, without doubt, the quality of the restaurants located in its vicinity will delight the most select palates. All of them have a wide and varied gastronomic offer based on fresh fish and seafood from Cullera fish market.
