Almond Day in Guaro

During the weekend of the 5th and 6th of February a new edition of the Almond Tree Day will be held in Guaro, where you can enjoy hiking trails and taste the typical gastronomy of the area in the bars of the village.

The day begins on Saturday 5 at 10 am with one of the routes through the almond blossom. This first excursion is 9 km long and is dedicated to people with more experience, due to its greater difficulty.

At 11 am starts the second 4.5 km long route, aimed at families with children and people with less physical fitness.

Both routes will be led by guides who will give an interpretation of the environment and landscape.

On Sunday 6th, the bicycle route will take place, a route of medium-high intensity in which you can enjoy the landscape with the almond trees in bloom, leaving the municipality at 10 am.

It is essential to register in advance to do the routes. You can register until 3 February using this form.
