Life in Spain

Sun 8 Jun 2008

This is an easy walk lasting about one and a half hours starting and finishing in Lliber and circles the hill, Montaneta just behind the village.

Lliber is a typical Spanish village and is just off the main tourist route on the road from Jalon to Senija and Gata de Gorgos. The village has an ancient church, with stations of the cross and friendly bars.

To begin start in the Plaza M ajor and walk east to find Calle St Juan which leads to Calle Virgin and becomes a concrete road as it climbs steadily across the southern slopes of Montaneta. Pass between villas and some old fincas and at the top of this road, just before you reach the motor road to Gata, and turn to the left to descend gently along the northern flank of the hill back towards the Jalon.

The track dips and then rises right before resuming its westerly course under the slopes of Montaneta. Ignore the path down to the river and continue round the Montaneta. You will see Montgo in the distance. Continue along the path which will bring you back to Lliber.
