El camp de Turia was the home of ancient Roman and Iberian settlements whose capital, Edeta (modern-day Llíria), is known for its great musical tradition and interesting old town. Some of the town's best-known architectural landmarks are the Monasterio de Sant Miquel, the Iglesia de la Sangre and the many archaeological site where Roman and Iberian remains have been found.

Close by is the walled village of Benisanó which also has a castle. The Cartuja de Portaceli in Serra, built between the 13th and 16th centuries, is still home to a religious order and its peaceful location amongst the pine trees invites rest and reflection. Casinos is famous for its traditional sweets and the whole area is hugely popular with walkers because of its interesting walks through the Parque Natural de la Sierra Calderona.
