Sierra de Bèrnia

The hike on Sierra de Bèrnia is a great one. Definitely one of the best hikes, I’ve done so far. Starting from the restaurant Rte. Sierra de Bernia, we make our way towards the Font de Bèrnia, before the climb starts and stuff gets more and more interesting. At one point, we cross the mountain in a very narrow tunnel, whereupon we are rewarded with a breathtaking view of the city of Benidorm. We continue the walk towards the Castell de Bèrnia or Fort de Bèrnia, which was built in the year 1562 to defend the coasts of the Ottoman attacks and demolished 50 years later, so that it couldn’t be used by the Moorish rebels. The path now leads us around the mountain before we reach our starting point.
