Cicloturismo arqueológico


La bici puede ser un excelente medio para la investigación geográfica o también, para descubrir rincones desconocidos. Con frecuencia nos encontraremos en nuestras excursiones con monumentos que quedan cerca de la ruta y merecen una detenida visita.

Uno de esos lugares, cercanos a nosotros y con indudable interés cultural es el Monasterio de la Murta. Escondido en un delicioso rincón de la sierra de Corbera, podemos adentrarnos en el valle aprovechado algunas de nuestras excursiones por esta zona. La sierra de Corbera es una pequeña alineación montañosa, de unos treinta kilómetros de longitud, por cinco de anchura, que se prolonga desde Alzira hasta Tavernes de la Valldigna. Se alza brusca y majestuosa, sin apenas piedemonte, sobre la llanura litoral hasta alcanzar los 626 m sobre el nivel del mar. Esta sierra posee el encanto de las montañas costeras. No tiene apenas cubierta vegetal debido a los continuos y devastadores incendios que ha sufrido, pero resulta sumanente interesante por su valor paisajístico y botánico, aún sin ser una cadena compleja ni difícil.

Es también, por su situación, un excelente mirador sobre el mar y la Ribera Baja. En su corazón se conservan las ruinas del Monasterio de la Murta, un entrañable rincón, con aire místico y romántico, cuya visita es obligatoria aunque deberemos dejar las bicis a la entrada del parque, junto a la caseta de vigilancia forestal donde el guarda podrá cuidar de ellas, aunque es conveniente dejarlas bien atadas.

Saldremos de Alzira por el camí de la Murta y entre naranjos, bien señalizado, llegaremos al fondo del valle visible desde el incio del trayecto. Se puede acceder por el Hospital de la Ribera o bien por la calle Vicente Vidal, en la zona industrial de Alzira, justo en la esquina que confluye la calle Virgen de la Murta, que es en realidad el camino que baja de la Casella y de la Murta. Desde aquí se plantean dos posibilidades: seguir la pista hasta el fondo del valle de la Casella, donde el camino cerrado con una cadena continúa en una larga excursión hasta Tavernes, pasando por el Pla del Barber y bajando hacia Simat de Valldigna o bien, seguir hacia la Murta, objetivo de nuestra excursión, más sencilla y familiar. Si seguimos la dirección (izq.) hacia la Murta, pronto veremos, tras pasar junto a unas antiguas fábricas, la totalidad del Valle, salpicado de naranjos y envuelto por las montañas de la sierra de Corbera.

El Monasterio de la Murta, al fondo del valle cuyo acceso se realiza a pie por un camino forestal en apenas 15 minutos desde el control, fue construído en el siglo XIV a instancias del mismo Papa Gregorio XI, quien dio su permiso. Fue habitado por una comunidad de monjes jerónimos procedentes de otro cenobio ubicado en el Cabo de San Antonio (Jávea) y en 1516 bajo el mecenazgo de Ramón Guillem de Vich se comenzó a construir la iglesia. En 1550 se alzó la Torre, para defenderse de posibles ataques piratas y con los años el Monasterio llegó a tener valiosos fondos pictóricos de Juan de Juanes, Ribera y Ribalta. Los frescos decoraban la sacristía, la Iglesia y los claustros, además de una importantísima biblioteca y preciosas reliquias de oro, plata, incensiarios y cálices. Con la desamortización, el Monasterio de Santa María de la Murta, junto con el de la Valldigna y Sant Jeroni de Cotalba entró en declibe y sus bienes fueron vendidos y destruídos. Hoy, la Murta son tan sólo unas hermosas ruinas cubiertas por la hiedra, algunas en fase de restauración y consolidación.

La vegetación que envuelve el cenobio y cubre las vertientes del valle está compuesta por murta (Mirtus arrayanis) de ahí su nombre, una especie hoy protegida y sobre todo, de fresno de flor, una especie única y escasa en el territorio valenciano ya que es propia de climas más fríos y humedos. Por su cercanía y facilidad de acceso, es una excursión ideal para realizarla una tarde de invierno. El parque, recordemos, cierra sus puertas una hora antes de la puesta del sol.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    ever before.

My women are already for that reason glad to study all of them and have in truth been using those things. We appreciate you simply being indeed helpful and also for opting for such extraordinary information most people are really eager to understand about.

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
