Let’s go to Bicorp to walk along one of the most scenic ravines in Valencia in terms of landscape value, and contemplate some examples of the Rock Art of the Mediterranean Arc, declared by UNESCO the World Heritage Site.
It is a circular itinerary of high scenic value through one of the most important ravines of the Caroig massif which has sufficient signage. Two types of the relief are combined in the route with its different and attractive components, the course of the ravine by its channel, the hidden corridor surrounded by rocky margins where a permanent stream runs, and the mountains covered with dense pine forests that frame its basin. You can find puddles, pools and a stream of limpid waters between the white limestones and intense colors, between a varied vegetation and an expressive procession of erosion of the rocks sculpted by the incessant action of the torrent. The cave paintings of Calicanto’s cave and plant biodiversity add interesting attractions to the natural beauty of the landscape.
