Vía Verde Serpis
The English train: Vía Verde de Villalonga
The Vía Verde used to be a old railway line and is considered one of the best places to take a walk in the Valencian Community, as it will impress you with its beauty and peacefulness. You will be amazed by the way as it has so many spectacular views to offer.
You find the Serpis Greenway between Valencia and Alicante – it is a very popular hiking trail! Starting in Villalonga, the route takes us to Lorcha on the bank of the largest river in Alicante. Crossing several tunnels and bridges, you will find the best-preserved building, called the Hell Factory, which is an old hydroelectic power station.
During the 13 kilometre linear route, we will see the old railway between L’Orxa and Villalonga. You will love its beauty and ecological value. We will walk along the Serpis River – the largest river in the province Alicante! Get prepared to see the “Barranc de l’Infern” – a protected landscape with stunning nature. In the end, we will visit “El Racó del Duc”, one of the best natural areas of the Valencian Community. There you can also see the Fábrica del infierno, which used the river water to move the generators!
El Racó del Duc is the ideal combination between the riverside forest that grows near the river and the limestone landscape offered by the Sierras de la Safor and La Cuta.
