Serra Calderona.

The Serra Calderona is a mountain range near the Valencia capital located between the provinces of Valencia and Castellón. I had gone once before with a friend to El Garbí back in October, and when I had the opportunity to go with my school on an excursion, I seized the day. La Serra Calderona es una cordillera cerca a la capital de València situado entre las provincias de Valencia y Castellón. He ido una vez antes con un amigo a El Garbí en octubre, y cuando tenía la oportunidad ir en una ruta de senderismo con el instituto donde trabajo, la aproveché. 

It took about a half hour from Valencia. We stopped near the village of Serra and climbed to the nearby Mirador de Resbaladores. The views were, as always, spectacular. We had lunch at the Mirador. Tarda sobre una media hora desde València capital. Paramos cerca del pueblo de Serra y subimos al Mirador de Resbaladores. No estaba muy lejos. Las vistas eran, como siempre, espectaculares. Comemos en el Mirador. 

It was a circular route. It was nice to have a guide explain to us more about the history of hiking the mountains and why they were trails (they had to find the easiest way to the summit.) The day ended with a visit to Serra, a quaint village of 3074 residents, where the bus was waiting to take us back to Valencia. Era una ruta circular. Me gustaba tener un guía explicarnos todo de la historia de senderismo de la Serra Calderona y porque había senderos (tenían que buscar la manera más fácil a la cima.) El día terminó con una visita a Serra, un pueblo pintoresco de 3074 habitantes, donde el autobús estaba esperándonos para llevarnos a Valencia. 

I have to say, this was one of the better excursions I have gone on with a school in Spain. I wasn’t paying too much attention to the climb and just enjoying the moment. I also had to make sure that none of the students were in the photo for various Spanish privacy laws. He de decir que era uno de las mejores excursiones que he tenido con un colegio en España. No hice mucho caso a la subida y disfruté del momento. No hice muchas fotos porque hay leyes de privacidad en España y no quería que saliera ningún alumno en una foto del blog.
