JO PARLA DE SA

JO PARLA DE SA

From the City Council, we are going to start a campaign to empower our main hallmark, “El parlar salat”. We also intend with it, to promote ourselves in the tourist field, since this linguistic fact is unique in the Valencian Community. The campaign will consist of the distribution of two stickers with the slogan "jo parla de sa". This is intended to allow us to stick them on our cars, and wherever we travel, we can carry our main hallmark.

The "parlar salat" is the type of speech characteristic of the Balearic Islands, which the Majorcan repopulators brought to Tárbena (in 1611 after the expulsion of the Moors), and which still persists today.

Sa Caseta des Moros

Sa Caseta des Moros

Asset of Cultural Interest. Castle from the Mudejar period popularly known as Sa Caseta des Moros. It is located 698 meters high in the Tossal de Santa Bárbara. It is of Muslim origin but most of the elements that it conserves belong to Christian reforms, the ornamental elements being non-existent. It conserves remains of the wall and some rooms can be distinguished, such as the base of a tower and the cistern that flanked the fortress and whose waters supplied the terraces located at lower levels.

From here we have spectacular views.

Santa Bárbara Church

Santa Bárbara Church

Declared an Asset of Local Relevance by the Generalitat Valenciana. It is a church of catholic worship dedicated to Santa Bárbara, patron saint of the municipality. It began to be built in 1721 so it belongs to the late Baroque, with the characteristics and architectural peculiarities of the area. It stands out for its monumentality, standing out from the rest of the buildings in the municipality for its bell tower. Its exterior structure is sober, simple with some simple decorative elements and a spectacular interior that fill the senses. A building with a rectangular plan that was intended to accommodate the largest number of faithful and a Latin cross plan to accommodate the different chapels on its sides. Its main altar is decorated by an altarpiece carved in real cedar wood carved by Los Hermanos Caballero de Sevilla between 2000-2002.

A well-known popular legend says that each man, at the end of his daily work in the field, brought a stone to help in the construction of the new church. That is why it is said that the church of Tàrbena is a work “of the whole town”.
