La Pilota (ball game) is part of one of the most genuine traditions of La Costera. El Genovés is a town where the oldest sport in the Valencian territory is intensely lived. It is the birthplace of great players such as Sarasol and Paco Cabanes, “El Genovés”, the latter considered to be the best pelota player of all times.
La pilota valenciana is a traditional game that dates back to the Middle Ages, a period in which the existence of trinquetes is confirmed, as well as games in the streets of towns and cities. The Pilota Museum collects the historical legacy related to the game of Valencian pilota, its research, conservation and dissemination through exhibitions and other activities.
