A wonderful experience with the view from Pico de la Zarza as the highlight. The view is spectacular. Travel guide told a lot and was patient for our rest breaks, in between. It is about 13.5 kilometers round trip over several mountains to the top. We left at 9:00 AM and returned around 5:30 PM. Only downside was we missed a rest stop with a bench to rest out of the sun. It was quite a tour, our muscle aches are proof of it, but for experienced hikers that should not be a problem. The last few hundred meters to the top were hell, but we wouldn't have wanted to miss it. Was a brilliant experience and quite possibly the highlight of our holiday. Our photos are proof of it.
