Cerro Verde (1.326 m.) and Atalaya (1252 m.)

A circular walk from a local beauty spot to the summits of two of the area’s intermediate peaks.

On this route, we will start with a short transfer to Fábrica de la Luz in Canillas de Albaida. This hike follows the Turvilla river (more like a stream) and passes by the Cueva del Melero (Honey makers cave), a lovely chestnut grove and some farms.

Once we are on the summit of Cerro Verde we will have stunning views to Sierra Tejeda y Almijara with their emblematic peaks dominating the horizon.

We will get to Atalaya on our way back, this peak involves an easy scramble, but requires a head for heights (it is optional and can be avoided if you don’t feel comfortable).

* *This walk can cause a problem if you have severe vertigo issues as it has a short stretch of exposed path. Not normally a problem but it can affect some people.
