Climb Description

Alto de Teix (also known as El Collao) from Torremanzanas is a short and easy climb which is generally used by cyclists as a link on part of a longer ride, than as a challenging goal in itself. It is well situated between longer climbs like Port de Tudons, La Carrasqueta and Port de Benifallim.

The climb from Torremanzanas is pleasant, ascending through open scenery for virtually the whole climb, and the descent from the top towards Relleu, is very fast and with picturesque scenery.
