Hiking route to discover the water of Granada and the greenest and most unknown side of the city
It is a theme walking route about water. We will visit different natural and artificial waterways. The objective is to know its history, uses, infrastructures and symbolism. But above all, to value one of the most important assets of our land.
We combine urban walking and contact with nature in places not frequented even by the “granainos” themselves.
We will begin the ascent by strolling under the Alhambra palace towers. We will climb to the top along a legendary medieval path by the water. We will take a rest at one of the highest viewpoints in Granada to delight ourselves with unforgettable landscapes.
But why is this an adventure activity in Granada?
To get back down we will go into the Darro Valley. A winding and sometimes steep path will lead us between small hidden viewpoints and magical landscapes. We will descend through a lush forest watered by the ditches that fed water to the Alhambra.
Once in the lower part of the valley, we will walk to the Avellano fountain. It´s momento to replenish water and learn about the cultural value it had in the 19th century and begin the return to the city.
