Hiking route: Cañon de Mascarat
Join us on this wonderful hike through the Mascarat canyon, where you can admire the natural power of Mother nature, which created this canyon. We hike through this ravine, which separates the Sierra de Bernia from Morro de Toix, Altea from Calpe, and Marina Baixa from Marina Alta.
This canyon used to cause many communication and trade problems between Marina Baixa and Marina Alta for generations – until engineers built a monumental bridge in the late 19th century which finally connected the two sides.
