The walk is easy and mostly going slightly downhill on wide paths inviting to socialize. This trail is in fact part of the history of a town where different civilizations (Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, and Christians) have passed through over time. We find Phoenician tombs in the Sierrecilla del Rey, archaeological remains of the Roman Villa in the Borbollón. It's part of etappe 10 of the - GR 249.
We saw sierras, with Mediterranean forest, highlighting its rich and varied vegetation. The arboreal species that grow, are usually perennial, small and coriaceous to better withstand summer droughts: Holm oak, cork oak and Majoleto thorns, accompanied by plantation of olive trees mixed with almonds. In the background we could sometimes see the Mediterranean See and as well the Sierra Nevada.
