Includes taxes & fees
Visiting mountainous area along the way that is lined with charming villages. Upon arriving to the spectacular valley of Guadalest you will visit its fortress and observe great views. Then you will visit Las fuentes del Algar, magic waterfall.
Guadalest is in the Alicante province in the region of Valencia and Murcia, Spain. It is about 25km west of Benidorm. It is situated in the mountain area of Marina Baixa.
Guadalest, whose full name is El Castell de Guadalest, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Valencia and deservedly so. Suprisingly even though remote and at the end of a windy road, when you get to Guadalest there is a thriving town.
Guadalest was founded by the moors. The oldest part can only be reached by foot through a gateway hewn out of the rock. At the top the ruins of the castle and the church's belfry are perched spectacularly on the edge of the mountain.
After our beatiful trip of Guadalest, we will travel to Algar Waterfalls which are 20 min ride from Guadalest. The Fuentes del Algar is a beautiful natural site composed of waterfalls that are connected by small water channels forming small rivers and pools, where visitors can bathe. This composition of the waterfalls, springs, tolls and crystalline waters, along with other services for tourists makes the Fuentes del Algar an excursion that can’t be missed. There are several parking areas, toilets, first aid, a picnic area and information panels that promote environmental education and information. Without a doubt, it is a place that you should not be missed, and that confirms that the province of Alicante not only offers you sun and beach holidays.
