By a particularly beautiful dry valley.
You leave the starting point along the paved road and soon you turn left and you start the climb to the plateau. Here you have beautiful views. You also walk along a number of old and young high-stem fruit trees, meadows and hedges. You return and eventually arrive at the Orchid Garden. This is the biggest attraction in this area. Now it's just a little bit back to the starting point.
Very well marked.
Walking shoes recommended.
Please note: The Orchid Garden has a limited opening period | See further information in PDF.
