Vall de Pop
Not far from the coast you will find Vall de Pop, also called Jalón Valley. This beautiful green valley is an area of vineyards, olive, citrus and almond trees and is sandwiched between several mountain ranges. The river Rio Jalón, the lifeline of the valley, winds past the villages of Parcent, Murla, Benichembla and Alcalí, Jalón, LLíber, Senija and Castell de Castells. The people here work as they have done for centuries. The Moors lived in this valley for centuries. This can clearly be seen in almost all of the villages.
Every village has its own culture and its own fiesta. In January and February, the almond trees bloom beautifully, and the valley turns into a white/pink flowered splendour.
The valley is also known for its wine. Sweet wines are mainly produced here that taste good as dessert wines. The famous Moscatel and Mistella come from this area. A visit to one of the bodegas should not be missed!
At an hour’s drive you will find Valencia, the second largest city in Spain. Definitely worth a visit now that you’re in the area. Book a bike tour in Valencia at surprisingvalencia.nl, the ideal way to visit this beautiful city.

Those who prefer to party in Ibiza can use the evening ferry ‘Cecilia Paye’, another high-speed ferry that leaves Dénia at 5 PM and arrives at the port of Ibiza at 7 PM. The next day you can then take the same ferry at back to Dénia at 11 AM where you will arrive around 1 PM… to most likely go back to sleep
Prefer a day trip to Formentera? Also an option!
