Valareña

Since the beginning there was an inconvenience in Valareña due to salt residue levels in the farming land, which greatly complicated the development of agriculture. Years later this difficulty became an opportunity, thanks to the implantation of rice harvesting, one of the main supports of the economy in Valareña.

Nowadays, Valareña holds a considerable leadership in regards to entrepreneurial activity. A village that bets on sustainable development in the rural areas, with four rural tourism houses to prove it. In fact, most of the businesses belong to the hotel industry, although commerce and construction have great impact on the economy of this village.

ORIGINS

On December 12th, 1962 the distribution of population was raffled, and a limit date was set on April 15th, 1963 for the new settlers to move into the new village. These settlers had different origins: Ejea, Rivas, Ibdes, Zaragoza and Uncastillo.

ARTISTIC HERITAGE

The church and the rest of the buildings stand out because of their architectural style, typical of the colonization towns. It combines the use of stone with other materials, which gives a very picturesque appearence to the urban environment.

NATURE

Valareña is very close to La Bardena, which allows for bicycle riding and hiking.
