The La Safor massif, close to the historic town of Gandia, is bordered to the north by the deep ravines of the Serpis river, where sites such as "Hell's Straits" (Estret de l'Infern) and the "Duke's Corner" (Racó del Duc) can be seen. Both the lie of the land itself – a thin river valley boxed in between mountains – and the habitats it offers for abundant plant and animal life, are worthy of interest. The area can be traversed from L'Orxa or from Villalonga, taking advantage of the bed of the former Alcoi-Gandia railway. The spectacular La Safor cirque, with its abrupt rock walls, stands 1,010m above sea level, providing magnificent views for brave climbers.
