About the Area:
Yecla is a town and municipality in eastern Spain, in the extreme north of the autonomous community of Murcia, located 96 km from the capital of the region, Murcia.
The most important mountains of the locality are Sierra de Salinas, Monte Arabi, Sierra de la Magdalena, and others.
The chief buildings are a half-ruined citadel, a modern parish church with a pillared Corinthian facade, and a town hall standing in a fine arcaded plaza mayor.
Yecla has traditionally had a thriving trade in grain, wine, oil, fruit and other agricultural products produced in the surrounding country.
Since the second half of the 20th century, furniture making has become a local trade.
Since the mid-19th century Yecla was consolidated as an agricultural municipality, in particular with the wine production. The main cultures in the region are vines, olive trees, almonds and cereals.
in the mid-19th century a new sector rose with the expansion of Yecla. The wood craftsmen have fostered the furniture industry and today Yecla is known by its great furniture production.
The well-known Familia Castano group is based here, and produces a range of Yecla wines (white, red and rose), as well as a few from neighboring Jumilla and Alicante.
Also based here is one of Spain’s largest cooperative wineries, Bodegas La Purisima, which serves as a reminder of the area’s bulk-producing past. Yecla’s ever-improving reputation has not gone unnoticed, as demonstrated by foreign interest in the region.
