Easy hiking tour at the Sierra de las Nieves, to "La Fuenfría", a place with a lot of history. 

The Fuenfría (cold springs) has its name from the many cold streams that flow from the Sierra de las Nieves. The hamlet was once situated on a trade route, on which, among other things, the fishermen delivered their goods on donkeys to the villages, at times when there were no roads yet. The ruins of the buildings, which are still visible today, come from magnetic mines, and were last used by bandoleros as hiding-place. The place is surrounded by wonderful countryside and the botanical richness, typical for the Sierra de las Nieves, with its pinsapo and oak trees.

A easy, almost flat hike, but very beautiful and interesting.
