Caves of Canelobre-Xixona-Alcoi-castles.
Very close to El Campello we find the caves of Canelobre with their beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. Jijona is the world turrón capital and this delicious nougat can be bought in any of the many factories. One of them houses the Turrón Museum another must. On the way to Alcoy we pass through two beautiful spots, the Puerto de la Carrasqueta and the Barranco de la Batalla. Alcoy´s Museu de la Festa is well worth a visit and is devoted to the Moors and Christians festivals that are so important in this town. The Old town, with the Plaza de España has excellent examples of industrial architecture.
All along the River Vinalopó river valley, there are towns overlooked by beautiful medieval castles: Bañeres, Biar, Villena, Sax, Peter and Novelda.
