Pasarela Relleu (Alicante Kings path)
"King's Path" Alicante: La Pasarela de Relleu
Are you ready for a hike 40 meters high?
Pasarela de Relleu, or you can call it “Caminito del Rey” (“King’s Path”) Alicante, is very similar to the famous “Caminito del Rey” (“King’s Path”) in Malaga. It has a wooden walkway and a glass viewpoint in the Amadorio river canyon. The footbridge route is easy, but not suitable for people who have vertigo, and it is not a cement path. We are very grateful to the city council of Relleu, which has reserved the walk for this day just for us.
The photos that we have used on this page are courtesy of “Más allá de la ciudad” and “LinkAlicante“. VLE thanks you very much.
This route brings us closer to one of the best kept treasures of Relleu: the 17th century reservoir. Since 1950, after the construction of the Amadorio dam, it was unused and abandoned. This year 2022, the Relleu City Council has promoted the installation of this wooden walkway that allows us to enter the narrow gorge of the Amadorio ravine.
