PR-CV 7 Bèrnia, PR-CV 436 Font de Bèrnia

The Bèrnia mountain range is the natural border between the Marina Alta and Marina Baixa districts, and its characteristic crest crowns the sights from Benissa to the south.

Owing to its signposted trails, the Bèrnia mountain range offers a myriad of possible outings for all hikers and the possibility of walking from Pinos to Callosa, Xaló and Altea la Vella. You will be surprised by its spectacular rocky formations and terraced landscape, which has earned it a distinction as a Protected Landscape. You can also see its cave paintings, which have been classified as a Human Heritage site, the Bèrnia fort, which has been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest, or its flora micro-preserves.

Following the trail towards Altea la Vella (PRV436) you can easily reach the shadow of Bèrnia and Berdiola, one of the best-preserved mountain landscapes in the La Marina region. If you climb up to El Passet, you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the Marina Baixa, and you will be able to descend to Altea la Vella following the Cova de la Serp trail. This path is connected to the classic Bèrnia tour (PR - CV 7) on two points, and this will allow you to cross the mountain range through the famous “Forat” mountain pass, visit the fort and admire the cave paintings.
