Benissa Council took another step to foster the town´s environment by approving a project to create 12 new sporting routes through nature.

The experience of being surrounded by breath-taking views and well-cultivated landscapes is characteristic to Benissa and continues to attract both tourists and residents.

This spring the Council introduced 12 new sporting routes that guide the visitors through the town´s memorable landscapes.

In unity with nature, the visitors of Benissa will be able to take three equestrian itineraries, including a low-difficulty route of 8,5 kilometres at Raco del Caribou, and medium-difficulty routes of 13 kilometres at Binyent-Rapita and Benissa-Lliber.

Renowned for cycling, Benissa is expanding its mountain cycling routes with medium difficulty itineraries in Benissa-Font de la Mata and Moli del Quisi-Pedramala, as well as the more challenging routes in Benissa-Lleus-Olta and Benissa-Bernia. 

The cycling mountain ports will be located at Puerto de Bernia and Pedramala Port.

For trial runners, a beginners´ route will be in place in PR-CV 7 Bernia and two medium-difficulty routes in PR-CV 340 Olta and Trail Running Els Tossals.

Funded 100 per cent by the EU Next Generation, the implementation of the new routes follows the municipal values of promoting a healthy lifestyle and caring for the environment.
