Traditional agriculture and cattle raising have contributed to the modelling of a rich countryside dotted with the results of human activities, alternating with holm oak and pine forests. To enjoy panoramic views, there are excellent lookout points on the peaks of Tossal de la Nevera (Catí, 1,281m), La Mola d'Ares (Ares del Maestre, 1,318m), and the Sant Cristòfal chapel (Benasal). For resting and relaxing, visit the fountains of Font de l'Avellà or the Font d'En Segures. For complete solitude, the river Montlleó hides canyons accessible only from Culla or Vilafranca. In winter the snow accentuates the contrasting attractions of this unique Mediterranean mountain landscape that one should take in and enjoy as calmly as possible.
