Climb Description

Port de Tudons is one of the most popular cycling climbs in the Valencia Community, and is a favoured training ground of professional riders over the winter. It has featured several times in the Vuelta a España, although often quite early in the stage rather than being a decisive climb.

The ascent from Penàguila is quite short and steady. The scenery here is very nice, with switchbacks on the lower slopes offering impressive views back into the valley. At the top of the climb there is a road which continues climbing to Aitana; however, this is a military base and is very rarely open to the public.

Port de Tudons is open and is enjoyable to climb throughout the year.
