View of the Puig Campana Mountain
As you are approaching the village, you cannot fail to notice the mighty Puig Campana mountain (that's Valencian for Bell Peak) which although some way off, from this angle appears to look down over Sella like some mighty guardian.
Wherever you are in the area is easy to distinguish the Puig Campana, firstly because of its huge mass and secondly because of the notch, which from here is on the top right of the mountain. The notch is called Roldan's Notch and the story (apparently true) is that a giant called Roldan use to live on the mountain. Roldan had a very beautiful wife, in fact she was so beautiful that it angered the Gods and they were so jealous of her beauty that they condemned her to die at sunset! Roldan, who loved his wife very much was furious. As sunset approached, he could no longer control his anger and he kicked the top of the mountain, creating the notch that we see today (the piece of rock that he kicked out landed in the sea and is what we now call Benidorm Island). By creating the notch, it meant that as the sun went down, a ray of sunlight was visible for an extra few minutes, thus giving Roldan and his wife an extra couple of minutes together before she died.
It is possible to walk up onto the summit of the Puig Campana (1408m/4619ft) but you should allow a full day for this little outing and consider a guide.
