    Stop At: Parque Natural de la Albufera, El Saler, 46012, Valencia Spain

    The Albufera Natural Park is the most important in the province of Valencia. It consists of a lake separated from the sea by a narrow coastline with dunes stabilized by a pine forest ( Dehesa or Devesa del Saler ).
    In addition, it is a transit area for many migratory bird species and rice crops occur along the way.
    As an anecdote, the Valencian writer Vicente Blasco Ibáñez wrote the novel Cañas y barro , set in the Albufera at the beginning of the 20th century. Of enormous ecological value, it houses endangered species such as the " samaruc " and is one of the few lagoons that are in good condition in the Valencian Community, whose coast was formerly formed by a succession of lagoons and marshes.
    Following the road that runs along this coastal strip formed on the Valencian coast, we will make the first stop at the Gola de El Pujol , one of the 5 gorges or channels that connect the Albufera with the Mediterranean. In this place, we will make a small itinerary of about 700 meters that will run parallel to the Gola from the gates that connect the lake with the sea to the Camí Vell de la Devesa, at the height of an artificial lake.
    Through a series of indications in the form of informative posters we will get to know the flora, fauna, traditions and history of the Albufera. The next stop we will make will be in the village of El Palmar , a fishing village, where we will taste a typical Valencian paella and enjoy a boat ride on the Albufera.
    Then, we will go to the town of Cullera , where there are monuments such as the Lighthouse , the Castle (with excellent views of the Gulf of Valencia towards the Montgó) and the Cave of Dragut . After passing through the lighthouse, we will ascend to the Castle of Cullera that dominates both the town and the sea. Built in the 13th century by order of King Jaime I the Conqueror on the old Arab fortress, it became walled, although these walls no longer exist in their entirety, leaving only a few sections.
    Finally, and after enjoying the panoramic view that the castle offers us, we will go to see the cave of the famous Berber corsair Dragut.
    In the history of the city, attacks by pirates were important, given that with a wide seafront to the Mediterranean, the kingdom of Valencia became the target of Berber pirates (Tunisians and Algerians) who regularly attacked and looted populations of the Valencian coasts, lacking an effective defensive system.
    In 1550, as part of his campaign to plunder the Mediterranean, the pirate Dragut assaulted the town of Cullera and got an important booty in the form of assets and captives. This event caused great commotion in Cullera at the time and it was practically unpopulated for decades. In the cave where, according to legend, the exchange of prisoners took place, this interesting museum about Mediterranean piracy in the 16th century is located.
