The Maestrazgo, the interior of Costa del Azahar
The interior of the Costa del Azahar is, like large parts of Spain, quite mountainous. Parallel to the Mediterranean there’s the mountain chain “The Maestrat”. In this area there are quite some sleepy mountain villages which are not real touristic highlights but maybe just because of that charming by their unspoiled identity.
You only need to go in the interior for about ten kilometers and you’re in this mountainous landscape with a view of the blue Mediterranean at the horizon. Here, rocky riverbeds, dried up due to the waterreservoirs further upstream alternate with olivegroves and almondtrees.
