Guadalest and Algar Falls

14 June 2019

In the morning we will visit Guadalest. Situated on a mountain overlooking the valley of the river Guadalest, the town is surrounded by the mountain chains of Sierra d´Aixorta, Sierra de Serella and Sierra de Aitana. The way there leads through pine forests, citrusgroves, nispera and almond trees the sight of which makes for a very pleasant journey.

With a number of permanent residents in the region of 300, Guadalest is tiny, but explodes with tourists who come to see the main attractions: the reservoir which is formed by the river and the picturesque town itself, divided into El Arrabel, the old town and the quarter of the castle, San Jose. Both parts are connected by a tunnel hewn into the rock.

There are many museums in Guadalest including a salt and pepper shakers, an art museum, Not far away in Calle del Sol, is the museum which puts into juxtaposition miniatures and gigantic sculptures. You will for example see a bull ring painted on a grain of rice.Miniatures are to be observed through a magnifying glass.

You can also purchase home made marmalade and mountain honey.

We will then travel back down the mountain towards Algar Falls with a stop at the picnic area where you can enjoy your own picnic.

The river Algar empties into the Mediterranean at Altea. On its way there, it passes the town of Callosa d´en Sarria, where it forms a series of roaring waterfalls, cascading down the rocks into natural pools. Known as Les Fonts dé l`algar, the entire area is a nature reserve and as such protected.

Apart from the waterfalls, the nature reserve is a showcase for lush Mediterranean flora which is why it also contains a arboretum, open to visitors. There is a souvenir shop, a small restaurant/cafeteria and toilets, then, you can head down wooden steps and follow the indicated path along the length of the river, leading from one cascade to the next. The entire length is 1.5km.
