    The path is perfect to go with agile people and having an optimal fitness level. The only problem I see is that not warn that it can be dangerous to go with children under 10 years old at least. There are sections that slide and can be dangerous. Once above the views are beautiful.

    The possibility to take a walk by the sea and enjoy views of an impressive Peñón seen from so close... It is worth losing a little.

  • Following the path to the top is a must. Go further once passed the tunnel at your own risk. Avoid during seagull nesting season. Amazing views from every spot
  • A marvellous view from the top, and the trek up is just challenging enough to make it an achievement. Bring good shoes with a sole with good grip, as much of the stone on the way up is slippery.
  • A great place for a day hike! It only takes about 3 hours max to get to the top at a leisurely pace. Be sure to take a left when you get to the fork and check out the back side of the mountain. Watch out for the feral cats at the top that are know exactly what aluminum foil is for haha
  • Absolutely gorgeous view, 100% worth the climb (well the clmb is not for everyone - if you have vertigo, stay clear from the upper part)
  • Stunning views from the top, well worth the effort, gets difficult 3/4 the way up, good footwear required.
