Spectacular hiking road de Cañon de Mascarat

Hello hikers! The Mascarat Canyon is a ravine between the Sierras de Bernia and Toix that separates the Serra de Bernia from Morro de Toix, Altea from Calpe, and Marina Baixa from Marina Alta.
A route of medium-high level, where we can appreciate the strength of Mother Nature, the force of water, where the water created the ravine to reach the sea.
This barrier was a problem for communication between Marina Baixa and Marina Alta for generations until the late nineteenth century engineers built a monumental bridge that finally allowed circulation.
