Palanques shares many characteristics of mountain towns: quiet, simple, friendly, picturesque and very noble people. It is a small town in the strict sense of the word, since it is one of the smallest in the Valencian Community with just over 14 square kilometers of municipal area, but in which we find spaces of great landscape importance. In addition to the Cingle, we must highlight the banks of the Bergantes, in which we find a great biodiversity. The Bergantes is also known as the river of the otters since it is home to the largest population in the Valencian territory. Among its mountains and steep ridges it is common to see wild goats and with luck in the clearings near the river some roe deer. Crossing the sky of Palanques it is very easy to discover the flight of dozens of griffon vultures and some Egyptian vultures. The landscape of Palanques is mountainous, except in the valley area, and the climate is cold in winter and mild in summer.
