The Rectoria Valley, is composed of 8 small and enchanting villages, forming a semi-circle around the Girona river that winds down to flow into the Mediterranean Sea. This fertile valley, a green oasis of citrus groves, is interwoven by rural lanes that are ideal for walking or cycling.
The small group of mountain ranges that surround it are perfect to practise activities such as walking, trekking, hiking, rappel, canyon descent, mountain climbing (Hell’s Ravine in the Laguar valley) or speleology. In the Segaria mountain range, which seems to protect the village of Benimeli, archaeological remains from Iberian and Moorish times can be found, as well as their ancient terraces, once used for agriculture. In the area, there are many natural springs, with crystal clear water (Campillo and Catalá springs) and caves (Bolumini), and from the head of the valley a spectacular uninterrupted view down to the Mediterranean Sea.
