The inland part of Castelló Sud is home to iconic locations that are rich in flora and fauna, pierced by various routes that will take you to different viewpoints, springs, pine forests and cork oak groves, such as the Penyes Altes in Artana or Castro Castle in Alfondeguilla. The altitude of our inland towns varies from 38 metres above sea level in La Vilavella to 381 metres above sea level in Eslida. However, located within the municipal boundaries are various peaks that reach as high as 948 metres above sea level, as is the case with the Puntal de l’Aljub in Eslida.
This landscape, which is ideal for hiking, brings together the green tones of the Mediterranean forests with the dry fields (carob, olive, fig and almond trees) and orange groves of the lowland areas, the reddish hues of the mountains and the topography shaped by the blue Mediterranean water. The system of caves, hiking routes, springs and rivers make water the main attraction of the inland part of Castelló Sud, both for its mineral and medicinal qualities (La Vilavella) and for the enjoyment that it can bring to visitors. The main example of this is the Coves de Sant Josep natural caves (La Vall d’Uixó), which is home to Europe’s longest navigable underground river.
