The trip, landscapes and natural points of interest:
The walk up to Silleta del Padul through the pine forest is steep, but you are rewarded with spectacular 360° views of the Sierra Nevada, the Sierras de Alhama, Tejeda y Almijara, Granada and the nearby villages of Dílar and Dúrcal. The return route skirts around the mountain before descending more gently back to Dílar. We can find water in a natural source near the old hermitage. It is possible to walk a little more and have a look through “La piedra Ventana” (stone window) a rocky arch that frames a magnificent view of the plain of Padul.
