La Serra Mariola

La Serra Mariola

A meeting with the Mariola is magical. At each step, on any well-worn or well-hidden forest track, on any wind-ing pathway, many surprises await the wanderer: hills, valleys and ravines are clothed in every hue of green, hermitages and mountain springs beckon to weary travel-lers, and the scenery comes alive with the song of a bird, the leap of a hare or the soft rustle and sudden flight of a partridge. The air tingles with the aroma of rosemary, sage, lavender, thyme, a herb known as "Aragonese tea", and an extensive vade mecum of aromatic and medicinal plants. Nature rewards visitors with some of her finest work-work we can enjoy and appreciate, as long as we heed her fragile balance and take pains to leave no indelible sign of our passage.

Route: From Banyeres de Mariola to Alfafara, visiting Benifallim, Benilloba, Benimarfull, Bocairent, Cocentaina, l'Alqueria d'Asnar, Muro d'Alcoy, Alcocer de Planes, Alcoi and Agres.
