However, if what you are looking for is a little more action, then we invite you to take a walk on the following hiking trails that are usually scheduled daily in the great Spanish city.
It is important to note that each of these routes includes an orientation sketch with valuable directions and advice. Anyway, it would not hurt to carry a topographic map. And if you are thinking of traveling during the winter season, we remind you that most hiking trails are made up of ice and snow-covered paths that will increase considerably, making it difficult to climb towards certain mountains.
