CALPE’S Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Environment has organized a set of 6 guided tours for the autumn in the Parque Natural del Peñon de Ifach.
This should be of great interest to Spanish speaking expatriates who have an interest in the wealth of antiquarian sites, as well as the indigenous flora along the Costa Blanca.
The objective of this initiative is to publicize this protected area of Calpe, one of the most visited in the Region, which also has a valuable heritage and a unique flora with important endemic species.
Visits scheduled for this autumn will begin October 5, to be followed by other excursions on October 19, and then the 2, 16 and 30 November, and finally on December 14. All guided tours will take place between 10am and 12.30pm.
The tours are aimed at adults, and the route is guided interpretation off the nature reserve with staff from the archaeological site at the medieval village d’Ifac, including access via the tunnel through the mountain.
Throughout the tour, participants will observe the cultural, environmental and landscape of this protected area. In addition, technicians of the Department of Infrastructure and Environment will instruct on the evolution of this protected area from antiquity to the present.
One of the most interesting aspects of the route will be to experience at first hand, the rich cultural potential of the Villa d’Ifac medieval.
