FINESTRAT COUNCIL recently presented a pioneering project to improve safety, conservation and promotion of the Puig Campana.

The Puig Campana is a mountain that forms part of the Prebaetic System, with an altitude of 1,406 metres. Known amongst locals as the ‘Sleeping Giant’, it is the second highest peak in the Alicante Province, located in Finestrat just 10 kilometres from the coast.

Finestrat Mayor Juan Francisco Perez presented the project to the Diputacion de Alicante, which includes providing Wi-Fi access to all hiking routes on the mountain – improving hiker’s safety whilst allowing them to share their experiences in real time via social media.

Diputacion de Alicante Vice President Eduardo Dolonwas delighted with the project and confirmed that Finestrat will receive a grant from the Diputacion – which will be quantified in the coming weeks:

“Finestrat Council knows what it wants. It has a very clear strategic plan that the Diputacion has committed to support.

“The only project like this so far has been the implementation of Wi-Fi on Benidorm’s beaches. The Diputacion considers it essential to go one step further and expand its scope of action in the Province, which we will now do with Finestrat.”
