There has always been magic in the air as we explore mountain paths. This sensation is difficult to explain but it’s exactly what is felt as we hike through Penya Foradà.
Our route tell the tale of ancient villages and their inhabitants, working the land and cultivating it opening tiny paths to unite the valleys. The majestic stone arc of Forada spectacularly appears before us, inviting us to scale its 700 metres. Our reward is a unique panorama not to be found elsewhere on the Costa Blanca. Most visitors never will witness its beauty.
In addition, you will discover why this area is included within Natura 2000 Network, an ecological network of European protected areas, thanks to its numerous important environmental values. Among these are rock plants, protected eagles and the Stone arc to name a few. The arc in particular is one of nature’s miracles, twice a year the sun shines through to reveal the now disappeared site of the Franciscan convent in Benitaia.
There is no better way to end the morning than speaking about what you have seen and experienced in these wonderful surroundings while tasting the excellent cuisine. We have selected a restaurant which upholds not only artisan traditions but also the quality of produce found in this unique valley.
To end the trip journey excursion you might wish to extend your day by booking a visit to a Cherry Co-operative. This is available at a small extra charge. Here we will sample their produce, discovering its social and economic important.
