hills and through empty valleys, whilst surrounded by colourful Flora and Fauna and continuously distracted by breathtaking views!
For the ones with a good eye you will see much wildlife, among which the big five (Bearded vulture, Ibex, Golden Eagle, Chamoix and Griffon vulture) are most notorious. Please click on the
