A public walk is taking place this Sunday morning along the beautiful natural surroundings of the Rambla Salada in Albatera. It has been organised by the association Albatera No Al Vertedero (Albatera says no to the dump), who have been campaigning against a massive rubbish dump being installed in the area, and they are keen for residents of all nationalities to come along.
They explained that they and everyone who joins them will enjoy this unique place that is hidden away in the mountains, walking over its 19th century aqueducts and canals and marvelling at the ancient salt water springs, continuing along the riverbed to the Barrón Negro for a rest, before returning through the countryside of Las Ventanas and the massif of El Cuchillo, where you can gaze at its windows sculpted by the wind over the years that give it its name and admire the view over most of the Vega Baja.
The walk is suitable for families and will show the importance of these natural spaces, which they hope will soon be protected. The meeting point will be the Pabellón Santiago Sanz in Albatera, on Avenida del Calvario at 9am and then everyone will drive to the start. The walk will take about three hours. No registration is necessary, just come and join in. There is even a prize for whoever takes the coolest photo.
