Monte Carrascal

8th of January

Let’s go to Azuébar, a small village in the middle of Sierra Espadán natural park to hike to monte Carrascal. During the hike we will observe some of the best cork oak forests in Valencian Community.

Azuébar is an excellent hiking destination. Just steps from the village, you will find yourself immersed in beautiful landscapes defined by geological formations that will capture your attention. Climb up Peña Ajuerá to see an incredible natural opening in the rocky crag and take some great photos. Archaeological remains have been found in the area, which show that it was inhabited in as far back as the Bronze Age. La Mosquera, a Mediterranean woodland, is another area that will beckon you to come and explore.

Peña Asolá, Monte del Carrascal, Las Balsicas, Pico Bellota and the trail connecting Azuébar and Chóvar are all great options if you’re keen to get your walking boots out. The walk to the castle, which affords beautiful vistas over the village, is the closest to the village. It’s an easy walk. When you reach the top of the hill, you’ll see a Muslim fotress that was built between the 10th and 12th centuries.
