La Vall de Laguar

Situated at an average altitude of 500 metres, it rises majestically between two mountain ranges which form this pretty and splendid valley –the last stronghold of the uprising by the Valencian Moors in 1609 against their expulsion decree. On one side, the "Barranc de L'Infern", a natural marvel formed by the River Girona, which separates the Sierra de la Carrasca o d'Ebo (1000 m.high) from the Sierra del Migdia and crosses all the valley until it reaches Isbert’s Dam. On the other side, like a real sleeping horse, the Sierra del Cavall Verd or Sierra del Penyó (800 m.high) which rests between the gentle sound of birdsong and the trickling of the many fountains and natural springs with their pure crystaline waters.

A picturesque valley which leaves visitors in awe when they stop to admire, on clear days, the island of Ibiza in the distance. There are places of great beauty, magical landscapes, bastions of peace and tranquility, where nature shows itself extremely generously, conserving a dense and abundant vegetation.

Description

The Vall de Laguar is one of the delightful places nestling in the central west part of the Marina Alta and the north of the Alicante province; it occupies an area of 23,26 Km2. It is formed by the villages of Benimaurell (Pueblo Alto), Campell (Pueblo Bajo), Fleix (Pueblo de Enmedio, where the Town Hall is) and, at the entrance to the valley, and forming part of it, we can find the residential community, or sanatorium, in Fontilles. It enjoys a typically mediterranean climate, welcoming its visitors with an average temperature of 20ºC, with mild winters and hot summers, with a mountain breeze at night.

In these lands and places visitors can find several natural fountains and springs to quench their thirst,worthy of particular note among them are: Font del Camusot, Font dels Olbis, Font del Gel, Font d'Isber, Font del Penyó, Font del Reinós (on the PRV-147), Font de Fontillles, which rises in the Sanatorio San Francisco de Borja, and many more...

Las Jubeas are an example of a typical rural habitat found in this area, situated in the extreme north-east of the River Girona. Its name of las Jubeas refers to old country houses which were historically used as houses at harvest time, currently some are in a state of disrepair and others have been rebuilt. The inhabitants of the valley made a distinction between upper Jubeas and central Jubeas, spaces of great beauty whose terraced topography shows us the close relationship that existed between man and his surroundings. The terraces, most of which today are uncultivated, are a fundamental element in the preservation of our natural heritage, as they act against the erosion of the soil. This erosion of the soil is one of the main factors causing desertification, so this landscape reminds us that human activities can help to preserve or even improve the surroundings.
