  • If you like mountain routes, it is a highly recommended place to go. A little bit hard ascent, but completely bearable even if you are beginner. And when you get up... A very beautiful landscape. Totally recommended.

  • A little hard is climbing the rock, if you're not used to walk a lot or have overweight, but once you get up, everything is worth. The views are spectacular. A place must to visit, at least once, if you go to Calpe.

  • A good hike quite difficult and not really suitable for young children. Complicated parts and dangerous because very slippery.

If several points of view interesting along the way for a final in panoramic view 360 °.

  • Beautiful walk to do with children. Location quite challenging but worth it for the wonderful view that you can enjoy. There is a picturesque stretch of the cave attached to the rope. The first piece is also accessible to the disabled with wheelchair.

  • Very good climbing, look at heat, nesting seasons, humidity in the morning on the wall and the way down through the tunnel. A classic mountain roads that are sure not to leave you indifferent.
