In 2015 the City Hall of La Pobla de Farnals promotes a project to connect through a pedestrian way the old part of the town , located five kilometers from the coast , with the town built on the beach.

From Carpe we designed a proposal to recover the old rural paths that, conveniently marked and equipped can configure a route through a landscape of great environmental value that would connect both urban centers. This approach aims to build a “light infrastructure ” developed with minimal environmental impact and low budget but high social and economic impact .

The first phase of this project started by connecting the public gardens of the town, located on the route, with the old part of the town of La Pobla . To solve this first section an existing tunnel is used at the start of the course.

The first action “Loop In Pobla” is intended to re-signify the starting point of the route, that connects the municipality of La Pobla de Farnals with its ochards. It is a very popular place that offered a gray and lugubrious aspect that after the intervention makes it possible to connect decently the urban nucleus with the rural environment.
