Sierra de Aitana
La Serra d’Aitana presides majestically over this mountains part of the districts of La Mariana Baixa, l’Alacantí; and the southern municipalities of l’Alcoi; and El comtat. There are many peaks over 1000 meters in height, flanked by limestone cliffs and interrupted by hundreds of metres of steep canyons, making this territory a delight to discover, and creating an endless diversity of landscapes. They are all worth contemplating and savouring, enabling you to enjoy nature at its best while musing on the painstaking remodelling job carried out over generations by the people who live and work here. Why not leave your automobile behind and tour this lovely rural world on foot, on horseback or from the seat of a bicycle.
Els Frares de Quatretondeta
Located on the slopes of the Serrella, Quatretondeta is one of those towns where you can still enjoy of a natural environment among the olive groves, almond trees and the limestone cliffs of La Serrella.
From here we have three routes of great beauty as the one of les Agulles de la Serrella, the one that rises to the Pla de la Casa and the one that goes to Benasau. Places such as the Huerto de los Frailes, les Agulles, the Cova Foradada or the Peña de África offer us enclaves magical routes for all levels. Of the ancient Mediterranean forest with a predominance of Holm oak only stands in the shade and in higher places, upholstered with an interesting shrubby undergrowth with kermes oak and lentiscars accompanied by a nun cushion, sage, rosemary, chamomile, lavender and many other typical plants of these mountains in the interior of Alicante.
The situation of Quatretondeta, in the Vall de Seta, the makes it ideal as a starting point to know all the natural, gastronomic and heritage wealth from the interior of Alicante. From the summit of Pla de la Casa, at 1,379 m of altitude, we will have the best viewpoint of our mountains, and on clear days we can even see Ibiza.
