Climb Description

Port de Benifallim is a popular climb with cyclists from Alcoy, as well as with professionals doing their winter training camps along the Costa Blanca. The ascent from Benilloba is generally easy, with gentle gradients; however, there are a couple of short steep pitches which can test the legs.

The first stretch between Benilloba and the village of Benifallim passes largely through olive, almond and cherry fields. From Benifallim, the road narrows and the hairpin bends start, offering beautiful views back down into the valley and of Benifallim's castle.

Port de Benifallim is usually open throughout the year.
