El Montgo

El Montgo

El Parque Natural de Montgo covers an area of 2,150 hectares and boasts more than 600 species of plants, making this an enchanting spot that is much loved by residents and visitors alike. Several walking routes can be followed, varying an difficulty, height and seasons of the year. The peak of the Montgó is 753 meters above the sea level and the intrepid climber will be rewarded with spectacular views along the coast of the Gulf of Valencia taking in the Peñon de Ifach at Calpe, inland to the Sierra de Bernia mountain range and on a clear day even across to the island of Ibiza.

Still visible in the caves of the Montgó is evidence of Neolithic habitation. More artefacts can be found in Javea´s Museo de Solar Blasco. Soldiers of the VIIth Gemini Legion also left inscriptions when they occupied this important strategic vantage point.
