Know Before You Go
Park at the first service station on the autovia A7 between Alicante and Alcoy. This is close to the Restaurante Meson Maigmo. From the back of the BP service station follow the sign Panto de Tibi 3 miles down this narrow winding road past a small urbanization and then out into the countryside. You will come to a locked gate leave your vehicle here and pass the gate it is a further mile down this road that you will come to a steep twist in the road at the bottom there are two stone bridges to cross then you will see the dam in front of you, to the right of the dam there are steps that take you up the full 43 meters of this absolute marvel that is the oldest stone built dam in the Northern Hemisphere and probably the world. It is a great ride down the road by bicycle but a tough push and walk back up the hill I walked back in an hour. Warning the sign at the path to the dam says access prohibited but there is no one there to stop you.
