Alzira and Albufera

On Wednesday 19th September, The Travel Group visited the small town of Alzira and then moved on to El Palmar on the edge of Albufera lake. Alzira is on the banks of the Riu Júcar, about 18 kms inland from Cullera. It was founded by the Moors. Albufera is a fresh water lagoon that is now an intergal part of the rice growing agriculture of the area. After lunch, the group had a trip around the lagoon and its canals.
