When visiting Sax, do not be fooled by its size, because the town offers a multitude of activities like visiting its castle, the San Blas chapel, or the houses of the Inquisition and Alberto Sols. Additionally, we highly recommend visiting this town during their well-known “fiestas de Moros y Cristianos”, which is held every year at the beginning of February, so hopefully, for next year we can enjoy them again.
