Tour description

This thematic trail winds through the woods and explores the land of chestnut trees! Besides revealing woods, crops, chestnut trees, the trail accompanies us through pleasant surroundings and a harmonious landscape where nature stands out in all its splendour.
The itinerary offers us several panoramic spots and the possibility of admiring the architectural details of certain picturesque villages that this very special excursion joins together. Several didactic points, simply marked on the ground and amply illustrated in a separate brochure, may be found along the way. You can even cover just short legs of this trail. The tour can be shortened.
