The Penyal d’Ifach

In the province of Valencia on the Costa Blanca is the touristic town of Calp, visited not only for its long stretch of beaches but also for the iconic Penyal d’Ifach, a massive limestone outcrop emerging from the sea and linked to the shore by rocks.

It is often compared to its southern counterpart, the Rock of Gibraltar, and is 332 metres high.

You can hike up the Penyal d’Ifach thanks to a tunnel carved into the rock, though the steep cliff face and narrow pathway proves intimidating to some, as are the aggressive birds during nesting season.  I chose instead to capture the rock from below, where it rises from the Mediterranean Sea, sheltering and protecting the town below.
