The Bercolón waterfall, a natural paradise near Valencia

The Bercolón waterfall, located in the town of Tuéjar, is one of the most beautiful natural wonders in the province of Valencia. It is characterised by a waterfall that cascades between the rock formations, creating a picturesque scene. Due to the lack of light in the small cave, the water tends to be very cold, ideal for very hot days. 

To get to this natural space with its turquoise waters, you can follow an easy route that leads directly from Bercolón to the waterfall.
