Let’s start walking up to the hill…

It is always nice to go for a walk a couple of days after it rains; the air is clear and fresh, everything is green, the flowers and plants are blooming.

So I have decided to climb up to the small volcanic hill “Montaña Gorda” in the municipality Granadilla, just next to the village called “Charco del Pino”.

It is realy easy nice walking, everything smelled fresh and there were a lot of plants and flowers I was surprised to spot them in Tenerife.

On the way to the hill, there is only one three, it is really curious, so don’t even try to search for shadow on a sunny day :-).

The walking is not difficult, it takes maybe 30-40 minutes (in my case it took longer as I went my 5 year old son who is interested in everything around, so it takes a bit longer), and after you arrive on the hill you’ll find yourself surrounded by lot of antenas…

From there you can enjoy nice views over the south area of the municipality, you can see the south airport, San Isidro village, El Medano, Montaña Roja, etc.

There are still pieces of land to buy, if you are interested…
