Climb Description

La Llacuna is a moderately challenging climb, with steeper gradients than the average suggests - notably in the first 4km of the climb. It is set in the Almirante Mountains and the climb is named after the small urbanización of La Llacuna situated on the Villalonga side.

It is the only road which connects the Serpis Valley with the Gallinera Valley, which makes it a great resource for cyclists. And it is well worth climbing for the views overlooking the peak of Benicaldell.

La Llacuna is open throughout the year.




Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in very good condition, with the entire climb having recently been repaved.

Traffic is practically non-existant throughout.




Alternative Routes

La Llacuna can also be climbed to from Villalonga and via the Murito d'Alpatro.
