Ibi Fair has been held since 1992 in honor of San Isidro. This year, in addition to the medieval fair for children, jewelery stalls, clothes, food, etc ... there are also exhibitions of motorcycles and horses.
The "Xorret del Cati" is a good place for a day trip, with plenty of picnic areas, toilets, bars and a camping area. The facilities are well equipped, clean and maintained. There are several trails to follow and other places to visit. All these places are easily accessible as they are all clearly marked. You can also camp with permission from "Mediterranean Silvoturoismo SL". I have left their phone number and website if any of you are in the vicinity and decide to camp. Normally you are granted permission, unless bad weather is forecast.
Ibi is a village that has grown in recent times. The Chorro neighborhood, sandwiched between the church and the castle, is the only thing that reminds us of the old historic town of Ibi. The castle is protected by its tremendous height and is well preserved. You can enjoy panoramic views.
There are many hiking possibilities in the "Xorret del Cati". Both from the top of the mountain and from the slopes of the same, you can find several trails, always well marked. The routes are safe and have been previously well signposted all the way. The best place to start hiking is undoubtedly from the hotel "Xorret del Cati". The landscape is typically Mediterranean with scrub, pine forests and lush green mixed with gray and yellowish brown rock terrain. There are more than 20 marked routes but I advise "the despeñador" and the "beautiful corner" which I think are the prettiest and the easiest.
The climb to the Chorret del Cati varies in steepness. In fact it has been the end of the "Tour of Spain" on several occasions and winners have always had to tackle the varying stages in this climb. If we go to Castalla (Alicante) on the south side we find directions that will lead to the foot of this mountain peak. By car it is a nice drive, if you choose to walk it is more than two hours and by bike .., it's better not even try if you're not very prepared. Whenever I've gone for the day I have seen amateur cyclists exhausted in the gutter sections and some vomiting from the tremendous effort required to tackle this path by bike. The views are spectacular throughout the entire journey, so my advice is to stop every 10 minutes. If you come by car, stop occasionally for a look back and enjoy the panoramic views offered.
