Riu Nou natural spot
The existence of l’Alcúdia de Crespins cannot be explained without the source of the Riu dels Sants (Sants river), more commonly known as the Riu Nou (Nou river). It rises very close to the municipality, passes through Canals and flows into the Cànyoles river. Two centuries ago, the famous botanist Antoni J. Cavanilles said that it was the most abundant source in the kingdom. The Nou river draws its flow from the Massís del Caroig and provides water by means of five irrigation channels for agricultural irrigation, to supply the many public and private washing places that existed, as well as for domestic use in many towns along la Costera.
