Description
This is a moderately strenuous circular route between three pretty hill villages in Guia de Isora. Chiguergue, Aripe and Chirche have been acclaimed for their ethnographic heritage, each settlement playing a part in the agricultural
development of this area from the 17th Century onwards. The difficult volcanic terrain is extensively terraced and criss-crossed with rough paths, passing many threshing circles and stone ovens along the way. There are great views all-around, up and down, and across to La Gomera.
