low-lying orchards and easy countryside as you meander along
valley floors. Passing through the gardens of the quiet villages

of Benimassot and your accommodation tonight.
You can either elect to have an easy half-day of walking to the
Pica Cantacuc or opt for the more challenging walk to the summit

will return you to our rural hotel here in Benimassot.
