This route begins near La Pola’s
camping facilities. This climb on the south side is
charming; you can find a small mountain retreat where
you can spend the night or just rest.
Before reaching the summit you can
see a cave where tradition says San Mateo used to live.
On the way back there’s a pine
forest, home to many birds: robins, greenfinches,
magpies and cuckoos; and also to many small mammals:
mice, squirrels and weasels, living among roe deers and
Observations: the descent in this rout coincides with
the local path from Santa Lucia, hence the signs will
have the corresponding colours.
