18th of June
Let’s go to Fuentes de Ayodar to visit one of the best bathing spots in Valencian Community – Pozo Negro, and hike in its surroundings, enjoying the views of the valley in this precious corner of Sierra Espadán.
We’ll meet in Valencia, in front of Mestalla stadium (the parking lot on av. Aragón) and drive to Fuentes de Ayodar. Once there, we’ll have a coffee on a terrace and start the hike.
The hike starts from the village and first goes up along a gentle slope. As we ascend, we will get better and better views of Fuentes de Ayodar down in the valley. Soon, we’ll make our way around the hill and take a trail down. This trail will get us to Pozo Negro. There we will make a stop to have lunch and bathe in the cool water of this natural pool. After that a short walk will take us back to the village. We’ll have a drink on a terrace and return to Valencia.
