Rubielos de Mora


The town has a well preserved old urban center.

Of the seven old entrances to the walled enclosure, only two are preserved: the portal of San Antonio and El Carmen (formerly of Santa María), the Renaissance town hall of the sixteenth century, several hermitages (such as those of San Jorge, Santa Ana or Santa Isabel) and houses of the nobility such as the counts of Florida, Condes de Creixell etc.

They emphasize, peculiarly, the lintels of the doors of many houses, that still conserve of the medieval age carved in the stone symbols or objects that they talked about to the profession of the person inhabited that it or symbols whose meaning has not been confirmed and that thinks they could belong to ancient secret societies of the Middle Ages (highlights a templar Tau).

As an anecdote, and due to the realization in forging of the street lamps of the town, it is said that there are no two equal, since in them different objects or animals are represented. The archaeological importance of this region has led to the opening a few years ago of a Dinópolis center next to the town where there are numerous fossils found in the area (known as the Amber Region, name of the Dinópolis center in Rubielos de Mora).

Together with the neighboring Mora de Rubielos, it constitutes an important attraction for tourism in the region. In addition to its historical-cultural attraction, we must also highlight the ‘bull embool’ “and the rope bull in the festivities of Rubielos.

The first is usually done every weekend of summer, at night, and takes a yuguete (which is placed before the beginning of the bull, in the Plaza de la Iglesia or Plaza de Los Leones, on a pylon) with two balls with hemp carrying fire, mud spreads on the back so that the animal does not suffer burns.

The bull of rope (or enogado bull) has more ample route that the embolado and is tied by a rope and the servants are the attendants to take to the bull by the streets of the town.
