Over the years, the development of modern tourist infrastructures and communication routes has facilitated access to our lands. The landscape of the Costa Blanca is marked by the sea, but also by the mountains that look out over it. The province of Alicante is the second most mountainous in Spain; the Mediterranean landscape is shown in its grandeur. From the valleys that house the staggered crops, of Moorish origin, to the horizons full of mountains covered by holm oaks, pines and carob trees and perfumed by a wide variety of aromatic plants.

In the south of the province, the mountains disappear and the landscape softens, palm groves emerge and orchards mark the horizon.
