The least difficult path is a simple route of 3.84km that is developed mostly through paved roads, so it can be done as a family or with elderly people. This route is ideal to contemplate the flowering of the almond trees and to know the municipal term of Alcalalí.
The second route is a 6.86km circular route that runs through the Partida rural de Mosquera (Mosquera rural district) and offers stunning views of the terraces when covered in a pink blanket. In the Partida rural de Mosquera, you could also visit the Hermitage of Sant Joan de Mosquera and the old Almazara (oil press), now converted into an Ethnological Museum and which is joined to the Alicante Wine Route.
If you are also a photography passionate, do not miss the chance to present your pictures of the Route of the almond trees in flower, to the contest that Alcalalí City Council organizes on Facebook during the month of February.
