Pedalling among lagoons

Saline marshes.In spite of the significant urban development experienced by Torrevieja in recent years, we can still find natural spots here such as La Mata and Torrevieja lagoons, where we can enjoy the contact with nature. The Information Centre, located at the start of the route, is the perfect introduction to what we will find through our ride. The second part of the itinerary runs along the old train design that used to connect Torrevieja with Crevillent. At the end of our route awaits an interesting visit to the Interpretative Centre of the Salt Industry that will open our eyes to the importance this activity has had in the history of the town.
