Probably the most famous mountain in Comunidad Valenciana – el Montgo. Few people have not heard about it, since it can be clearly seen from Valencia beach. Curiously, it resembles an island from there, here is your chance to check that this is not the case.
We’ll meet in Valencia in the parking lot on av. Aragón in front of Mestalla stadium and drive to Denia. Once there, we’ll have a cup of coffee on a terrace of a bar before starting the hike. We will start the hike from Pare Pere shrine. First we will pass by Cueva del Agua and then continue with the ascent to the top. There are actually two peaks on this route – cruz de Denia and cruz de Javea. We will stop for lunch on the latter one before making our descent. After that, a wide gravel road will take us back to Denia. We will go for a drink on a terrace here and then return to Valencia.
Difficulty: medium/high (15km with 650m elevation gain).
Technical level: medium/high (rocky descent from cruz de Javea).
