This route located in the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata is perfect to discover one of the most beautiful parts of Andalusia, an ideal route for those who want to know this protected area.
It is not a circular route and the duration of just over four hours makes it advisable to have a vehicle available at the end of the route in Las Negras or Agua Amarga, depending on which direction you take.
The trail is of medium difficulty due to strong uphill sections but with stunning views of the cliffs and coves, some accessible but with significant slopes so you have to be especially careful.
If you follow the path you will pass by abandoned farmhouses until you get to the ancient remains of the castle of San Pedro, at which point you can turn back towards Agua Amarga or proceed to Las Negras if you have a car waiting there.
San Pedro Castle was originally built as a prison but later served with a defensive purpose; finally it was mostly destroyed by an English ship in the mid-eighteenth century.
Cabo de Gata is a land formed by ancient volcanoes, a place with numerous hiking trails and very beautiful places which without doubt are worth a visit.
