Just twenty-five kilometres from the Costa Blanca, as the crow flies, rise the secret mountains of Alicante. This is another world completely, beautiful and completely unspoiled, where terraced slopes, dotted with small villages, climb towards craggy limestone peaks that soar over a thousand metres into the sky.Here, beneath the craggy limestone peaks, you will enjoy some of the best walking you can experience anywhere in Spain, with routes through fertile valleys coated in almond groves, and along panoramic ridges and dramatic ravines. As you walk, you discover sweeping views and also reminders of the region’s multi-layered history to which not only the Moors, but also the Iberians, Romans and even Mallorcans, have contributed. In this sunny corner of Valencia, life moves at a slower pace, and you receive a warm and genuine welcome at the authentic mountain hotels along the route.
