GUIDED WALKS IN THE VALL DE GALLINERA
START FROM AND RETURN TO BENIALI VILLAGE IN THE VALL DE GALLINERA:
All walks are between 2 and 5 hours duration and are tailored to your needs and ability. All walks commence from Beniali village and arrive back in the village. Routes include local land marks and places of interest - the Forada (hole in the mountain), the cave house, the ice house, Moorish ruins, and even a castle. All walks are led by your local English guide, Paul, who is fully equipped and trained in first aid. Good walking shoes/boots are recommended.
The walks include Vall de Gallinera, Val d'Ebo and Val d'Alcala. You will walk through orange groves and past land, terraced and irrigated by the Moors, covered in cherry, olive and almond trees. In spring, the hillsides of the valley are covered in a blanket of white cherry blossom and in May, the locals are out picking their cherries to take to the local "co-operativa" to be shipped to supermarkets abroad or sold in local bars.
Wild flowers are in abundance and you have a good chance of seeing golden eagles soaring above the mountain tops. From the hillside above Beniali village, there are views down to the sea, past Benirrama castle and in the opposite direction, views to the Forada and on to the Sierra Mariola in the distance.
