Description
The area around the picture-postcard and verdant hamlet of Las Vegas, near Granadilla, is wonderful for walking – amongst rural terraces, open pine forest and rugged barrancos. There are a number of options to take different routes, and variations on routes. This walk has some overlap with our Walk # 20 but generally takes an opposite direction, offering new perspectives on the surroundings. The area is well served with walks signposts and information boards. Needless to say, the views are tremendous at every turn on the track. The charming and friendly ambience of the “La Tasquita de Las Vegas” makes it the perfect place to rest up with a cool beer afterwards!
