Activities & What to see
The dramatic landscape of the El Port Natural Park extends between Catalonia, Valencia and Aragon, and covers an area of approximately 60,000 hectares. The majestic limestone massifs are filled with steep cliffs, deep gorges, forests and rich wildlife.
The Val de Zafán is a 45km trail which follows the route of the now defunct railway line and offers breath-taking views of Els Ports mountain range and river Canaleta and its surrounding landscape. The route is divided into two sections. We recommend starting the trail from Cretas and finishing in Xerta, as the trail is easier from the start, however the Greenway can be completed in either direction.

“Wandern in der Stille. Maestrazgo wanderurlaub. Das erste, was meine Augen sahen, war die unendliche Weite des Himmels.Das erste, was meine Ohren hörten, war das Raunen des Windes in den alten Bäumen. Das erste, was mein Herz berührte, war die Schönheit der schroffen Berge und der zarten Blumen. Das erste, was meine Hände fühlten, war die Härte der Steine auf dem Acker.ˮ
