What to visit in Jubrique?
Since this place was founded by the Arabians, and the very sheer area it is built over, doesn't let anything else, streets here are an irregular labyrinth, where walking around and advertising the evolution from Arabic to Christian culture become a real pleasure. The most important building in this place is San Francisco de Asís church, which was started to be raised in the 16th century, with a rectangular shape and elements such as a beautiful tower. We can also highlight Santa Cruz del Chorrillo hermitage or Castañuelo chapel.
The Lavar river Fountain is worth to be visited. It was the public sink and the only water supplying point for the whole town in the past, but surprisingly there are some locals who continue going there to take water from here yet.
Did you know that Jubrique was one of the largest wine producer in the 18th century? There were up to sixty factories there! You can visit the Museo de Artes Populares y del Aguardiente (Popular Arts and Moonshine Museum) to know the grape production history and how these traditional liquors were made.
Typical dishes are based on local products here. Some of the most famous are the fennel stew, cod and leek little fritters, and an excellent goat cheese!
For the sweet-teethed there are hijuelos (honey pastries), mantecados (typical buns), orange donuts and wine donuts.
