I would like to share my expertise and love for the countryside around Granada and particularly around my village of Quentar which is 15 km from Granada capital. I regularly lead walks for up to twelve people on a voluntary basis in my area. I hike several times a week. Having lived here for many years I know every trail and route around my local hills and mountains. I love to share my stories and experiences of the local people and environment. I know a great deal about the local history having lived here for many years. I can take you on a hike for three/four hours seeing the most spectacular views, breathtaking. This will be followed by a wonderful freshly cooked paella for all to enjoy on the terrace of my home, made by myself and our local village paella competition winner.
Heading up through the historic village of Quentar which dates back to Moorish times, I will give you information on its history and about its past and present inhabitants. The route we will follow is is difficult to find if you don’t know the area. We will proceed up to the famous dam of Quentar, an amazing place and from there through the lower foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains and back to Quentar. We will stop on route for a snack.
