The Corbera and les Agulles Sierras

Geological offshoots from the Iberian range, these sierras run from Alzira to Tavernes de la Valldigna, hiding a now abandoned Hieronymite monastery in La Murta (Alzira) in a valley offering various botanical treasures, where over 1,000 plant species have been catalogued, many of which are endemic to the area. The ash trees here remind us of colder epochs, as do the Aleppo pines and oaks. Traditional footpaths cross the sierra between the fountains of Barber, Sangonera, La Casella, l'Ouet, etc. Mountaineering can be practised at diverse points throughout the area, and a network of signposted trails run between Alzira, Corbera and Tavernes de la Valldigna, good for exploring these coastal mountains. The peaks of Ratlla (626m), Cavall Bernat (585m) and Les Creus (540m) offer panoramic views over the nearby coast.
