One of the most beautiful natural sites in the interior of the Valencian Community: El Salto de la Novia (The Leap of the Bride - a 60 m waterfall). The legend says that, as a test of love and omen of good marriage and fertility, the bride had to jump to the opposite bank in front of the gaze of those present. If she succeeded, it promised great happiness to the couple. If she didn´t succeed, the marriage would be broken because it was considered unfulfilled or unfortunate.
