ISTÁN – PUERTO DE LOS BARRACONES
This is a revised Country Walk with an easier way back into the village. Walking from the Hotel Altos de Istán, the route follows Moorish irrigation channels then heads north along a good road for about 4 Km. Then the route turns down along a track that passes through orange groves, back towards the village. About 2 km from the village the route continues up and along a contour track, giving an easier way to the village and avoiding climbing the sharp incline back into Istán. Well deserved refreshments are available in the Plaza (if we can find it in the narrow streets).
Directions to Hotel Altos de Istán
Take the road to Istán. On entering the village, take the right fork (there is a sign to the Hotel). After 150 m, at the bend, turn right towards Piscina Municipal. Drive up the hill, past the sports complex. After a further 200m you will see the hotel on the right. Park in the carpark which is just before the hotel. This is our meeting place.
