It is a little bit far. Two hours by boat to arrive there and two more hours to return in the same day, but it is a good experience if the weather is good.

The Via Verde Green Route

It's a scenic and beautiful walk/ride on the path of an old railway. Very flat and enjoyable, full of locals.

Reviewed By Adrian-Ionut B

The route is perfect for casual bike rides. My 7 year old had no problem riding it round trip. Me neither and we are not athletes. The scenery is amazing, it had tunnels, Bridges canons and it is 100% isolated from traffic. You can rent bikes from either Oropesa or Benicassim. A true delight.

Castillo Templario Ponteficio

Reviewed By Gary S - Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

we took a small detour to come here between Valencia and Tortosa...glad we made the effort to have a wander here and look up the viewpoint/castle and related history.
The castle is a nice slow climb from the beach area and a nice mini workout in the summer hear. Most visitors were certainly pumping sweat on the walk around.
You can access the very top by small walk ways and steps...make the effort as the views are splendid.
The building has been gracefully restored and is well kept. The small entrance fee is worth it.

Montanejos Hot Springs

Reviewed By Esty666 - Wickenburg, Arizona

Our frieds who'd been there several times before showed us this place on our recent visit to the area. After a short drive from the Valencia area into the Mountains we wound our way up a serpentine road, winding through the small town of Montanejos just to end up on the far side of town on a small roadside parking lot, like at a viewpoint along on of our highways in the West. From the parking lot you take a path, with steps, down to the river which at this point exits from a narrow gorge with steep sides, more or less vertical on the right side. There's a Terrace with a small food concession - closes fairly early in the day, be warned, since once it closes, the restrooms get locked as well! At first the river, the Rio Mijares, doesn't look like much - and it isn't, really, just a creek. It's the scenery and the setting. Below the Terrace between two footbridges you can wade right into the creek, all the way across it with the water never higher than your thighs, and a small spring further up provides warm water - to note, WARM, not hot, so hot Springs is a misnomer; the water is merely warm, and not terribly so! The water is very clear and clean though, and shoals of small fish will come and nibble at you gently if you just sit down in it. Yes, I know how this sounds, but it's sweet and cute actually. There are stone benches along the grassy stretch of the north bank were you can spread your towels and whatever you've brought. A real treat is a short swim - in colder water, mind you - upriver through the rocky gorge and then to a lush green canyon. Careful, you can't touch bottom here, so this part is only for swimmers. On the whole a most idyllic, wildy beautiful spot with an almsot mythic and magic quality well worth visiting. It's packed in the summer, but there were few people there at the end of September.

Parque Natural del Desierto de las Palmas

Reviewed By Simon G - Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

Took a drive up into the Mountains and parked up near the monastery. A short walk along the road and then across a ridge (regular signposts point the way) to the ruins of Montornés castle. A fairly easy walk with rugged scenery and some really interesting ruins to explore. The whole area is fantastic with miles and miles of walks. Well worth a drive up (follow the road and it takes you back down again further up the coast) even if you don't get out and walk. There a couple of well regarded restaurants near the top, with a wonderful view and good food.

Santa Maria la Mayor Basilic Church

Reviewed By Manuel a - Montevideo, Uruguay

This is an amazing basilica. The choir chamber is exquisite, the staircase decorations truly exceptional and the organ, though not the original, a beautiful piece of art. The basilica was burned during the Spanish civil war in the late 1930s, and you can still see bits of the original frescoes in the ceiling next to the organ. The museum inside is also interesting.

We walked round these walls and we really impressed by the beauty and indeed the condition of them. There are several gates that break up the wall with a history to each one. Well worth a visit.

Ermita Santa Lucia

Reviewed By jackfrost13

Well worth a visit on a clear early evening... Great views from the top. Beware...The road near the top has more potholes than flat road... Not the best if on a road bike! If cycling up...The climb is a challenge. Hits 20% near the summit. Nice scenery though

Parque Natural de la Sierra de Irta

Reviewed By Paul M

What a delightful drive along the coast up to spectacular vantage points with views to die for!
The drive is not for the faint hearted, some very tight bends and drops!
The coves for swimming and snorkelling are stunning! The fish were stunning.
We drove into the hills on roads which are not really roads, my advice walk or cycle or possibly a trail bike with supplies as nothing around for miles. Worth the visit.
