The museum of the Castle of Onda is especially unique due to its location. It’s complicated to find a castle-museum that doesn't just display relics from the castle itself. After passing through the streets of Onda, we arrived at this point to visit the permanent collected of historic ceramic pieces from the region. It was a great way to finish of day of exploring this curious and picturesque village.
The Manolo Safont Tile Museum was founded in 1968 with a number of interesting items from the personal collection of Manolo Safont.

An interesting place to visit.
The Chapel of San Vicente Ferrer is located in the place where, according to tradition, Saint Vincent Ferrer preached when he visited Onda in the fifteenth century. The central section has a semicircular dome and Corinthian pillars. Its blue ceramic tile roof is very interesting, as is the altarpiece of the facade, consisting of twelve pieces of pottery. The altar and frescoes are inside.
A charming place, with lots of history and many things to discover. During the first weekend of August you can enjoy the many activities which are held during the Medieval Fair, in addition to the daily tours offered by the council.
A place to discover, surrounded by nature. Next to the shrine is the Museum of Natural El Carmen which is very interesting. July 15-16 are the celebrations of La Virgen del Carmen and December 18, Our Lady of Hope.
