Garbí viewpoint

All these places are 15/20 minutes from Algimia de Alfara

Garbí is a mountain 593 meters above sea level located in the Serra Calderona's eastern part, a short distance from the Mediterranean Sea, between the municipalities of Estivella, Segart and Albalat dels Tarongers, in the Camp de Morvedre region (Valencia). In this place the palm hearts and strawberry trees stand out, and its most visited corner is the well-known "Mirador del Garbí".

 

One of the accesses from Segart is a variant of the GR 10. On the CV 329 road the marked path begins that goes up a ravine and reaches the foot of the Garbí channel, a channel equipped with chains, in at least 5 sections, for facilitating climbing in the most vertical and difficult steps. It is not suitable for people with vertigo and with water, it can be dangerous. Above the canal we find the path to the right that will lead to the Garbí hermitage and viewpoint.

Ojos Negros Greenway

The Ojos Negros Greenway in its Valencian section from Barracas (Castellón) to Algimia de Alfara and Torres - Torres (Valencia), has been undertaken by the Generalitat Valenciana. It should be noted that the original mileage of the mining route has been respected, with the idea of preserving the historical and most important: with the anticipation that in the near future there is a kilometer unit between both sections with a distance of almost 200 km. Thus, km 0 will be in the mines of Ojos Negros (Teruel) and km 203 in the Port of Sagunto. Currently, in addition to the section described here, there are another 92 km through Teruel lands to the town of Santa Eulalia, which makes it the longest Greenway in Spain with 162 continuous km.

Arab Baths of Torres Torres

In these baths, restoration work has been undertaken in order to make them open to the public. The first documented reference to the baths is from 1555, when the baths would surely no longer be used as such.
