9th of December
The epic hike of the month – the ascent to the highest peak of Alicante province – Aitana. With the elevation of 1557 the peak will offer us splendid views of the Mediterranean coast and all the surrounding mountains.
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.
