Font Roja was declared a Natural Park by the Generalitat Valenciana in 1987, thus becoming the first natural park in the Valencian Community.

It is located between the towns of Alcoy and Ibi and is one of the best-preserved natural areas in the Valencian Community. Font Roja also presents a great diversity of environments of high ecological, landscape value and is a special bird protection zone (ZEPA) as well as a place of community interest (SCI).
