There is another way of discovering the Costa Blanca and its inland, besides visiting its villages, streets and monuments and tasting its traditional and delicious gastronomy. It is through the multiple hiking routes across it.
These paths run through wonderful and spectacular natural landscapes, with either mountain, sea (or both) routes to choose from.
One of these trails is the route called “Camins de Pedra i Aigua” (Stone and water paths), whose itinerary links the towns belonging to the Vall de Pop community: Benissa, Senija, Llíber, Xaló, Alcalalí, Parcent, Murla and Benigembla.
The route follows the course of the Xaló river during almost all the itinerary and highlights the importance of the ethnological patrimony of the area’s rural (“riuraus”), hydraulic (wells, cisterns, irrigation canals…) and agricultural architecture (terraced areas with dry stone walls, pens, shelters…).
It is a linear 19.5 km trail with a very low difficulty that takes approximately 6 hours to complete. This route can be started in any of the Vall de Pop towns and can be made in several stages depending on the available time.
We invite you to learn more about it on the Vall de Pop’s website (http://valldepop.novitur.com/ ) or Tourism Office, as well as on its different towns’ websites and Tourism Offices.
