Both Callosa de Segura and Redovan are nestled into the side of the very impressive Sierra de Callosa. The mountain range is 4.6 km long and the highest point is Águila at 572 m. The mountain dominates the area providing a landmark which seems to change colour and structure depending on the weather and time of day. The PR V-54 is a marked circular hiking route with several variants and there are three climbing zones offering different levels of difficulty.
Callosa de Segura is a large town with a long high street and a charming old town. The impressive blue domed San Martin Church, beside the town hall and the tourist office, is situated at the bottom of a tangle of streets which lead uphill to the metallic roofed San Roque Church. The indoor market is one of the best in the province of Alicante and the large weekly street market every Wednesday is also very popular. There is a train station, indoor heated swimming pool and two wonderful natural parks both with barbecue areas.
Redovan is found on the southern side of the imposing Callosa Mountain. It is much smaller than the neighbouring town of Callosa de Segura, but is packed full of charm and character. Discover the village, taking in the impressive arches of the very modern bandstand, see the old and new town halls which face each other and take a peek in the church. The natural park of Nuestra Senora de la Salud is worth a stop. It has some stunning views out towards Orihuela, picnic areas and is the starting place of numerous marked walking trials.
