The Carrascal de la Font Roja, protected since 1987, is an excellent representation of the mixed Mediterranean forest and is located between the towns of Alcoy and Ibi. It occupies an area of 2,298 hectares and presents a great diversity of environments of high ecological and landscape value depending on the part where we are located.
It is worth noting the presence of plant species such as the holm oak, Valencian oak, maple, ash or yew and a fauna headed by white-bellied eagles, owls, badgers or snakes.
As in the case of the Sierra Mariola, human presence has been constant for hundreds of years, which translates into the presence of cavas, old coal bunkers and farmhouses throughout the territory.
