Total elevation gain

This route starts from Benimassot. Near the arch that serves as the entrance to the village you can find the information panel regarding today's path. From here, take the old road that leads to Tollos. Go through Tollos and when you are leaving the village you can see another information panel. Continue walking along a good track that leads you towards the ravine known as Barranc de Malafí, passing by the Penyetes corrals. After the ravine you arrive to Pla de Petraco, where you can stop to admire the macro schematic cave paintings. Continue along the path, ascending along a section of the ancient path that linked the valleys. Head towards Castell de Castells, which is approximately the route's halfway point. To reach this village, deviate from the circular route for approximately 1 km. After arriving at the village and visiting it, return along the path that heads towards Famorca. This is one of the most beautiful sections of the route, but also the hardest. You pass by the ruins of a mill, and you can quench your thirst by taking advantage of the many springs that you come across before reaching Famorca. Go through Famorca and then Fageca until you reach Benimassot, where this route ends.
