Along this itinerary, discover a whole mosaic of beautiful landscapes that man has shaped over time.

Olive trees, scrubland, rockroses, junipers and holm oaks. Further on, in the steepest parts, on the cool banks of streams, there is still the chestnut tree, an important source of income for the inhabitants in the past. Old sheepfolds recall that there was also a considerable pastoral activity.
