Route #8. Magic Dehesa: Natural Park of La Albufera, Dehesa and el Palmar
We start this experience from the city of Valencia heading south. We visit the imposing complex which is the Palace of the arts Reina Sofía, the Agora and the Oceanarium. In a few minutes we will be immersed in the heart of the Natural Park of the Albufera. We circulate among rice fields enjoying a real sea of crop fields. Our next visit will be imposing L’albufera and La Dehesa de El Saler, a real green lung for the city and where is located the town of El Palmar, typically Valencian people where we can appreciate and understand part of the history of Valencia with its customs, its flora and fauna. Without doubt El Palmar is one of the best places to enjoy the true “Paella Valenciana” or taste their dishes. Low difficulty and great beauty make it advisable for any cyclist and any time of year.
