UNEARTHING THE PAST
Elda and Petrer (Alicante) are the cradle of shoemaking, especially regarding high-quality footwear for females, as attested by the many actresses, international artists and members of the Royal Family who, year after year, choose shoes from the so-called ‘Shoemaking Valley’. Here we will visit the shop of a chief brand where we will be able to acquire some of their precious creations and even customize them. Then, in order to discover when and how this industry began we will enter one of the old cave-houses, excavated at the slope of the castle’s hill, and learn the old ways of shoemaking. Endpoint to this experience will be an exclusive tasting of local products and wines inside the castle itself.
