From Relleu to Sella

From Relleu cemetery there is a signposted path to the Sella valley. Here you get a view of the mountains around Relleu, the Sella mountain and the Sella valley.

Park the car at the cemetery on the northeast side of Relleu. You will now make a round trip, first up a valley from Relleu, then over a small plateau, then across to the other side to a valley that offers a view of the Sella, and finally back to Relleu.

Walk 50 - 60 meters along the paved road towards Relleu and then turn right onto the steep paved road shown in the picture below.

The concrete path leads relatively steeply up a ridge with a steady rise of approx. 1 kilometer.

You will soon get a nice view of the village Relleu with the ruins of the castle at the top.

Eventually you also get a good view of the valley with terraced agriculture on the sunny side and beautiful mountains in the background.

In February/March, the almond trees grown here bloom.

The concrete road eventually turns into a dirt road. Closer to the top, the path runs on flat terrain.

Eventually you will come to an open space. The tour continues on the other side, but first you should detour to a viewpoint.

Follow the path that leads to the right, at the beginning of the open space. Continue along the hillside in the direction back to Relleu.

After a couple of hundred meters you come to an open space that offers a view of Relleu and the surroundings.

Here it may be appropriate to take a break. You are now halfway there.

Then return to the open space. Cross this and follow the path that goes over to the Sella valley.

As soon as you cross to the other side, a beautiful landscape opens up with terraced agriculture where almond and olive trees are grown.

At the bottom of the valley you can see the village of Sella and the Sella mountain on the upper left.

At the first intersection you come to, turn sharply to the right and follow the marked path (yellow and white) that leads back to Relleu.
