DAYHIKES

Date: Tuesday, 07 February 2023

A hike through the hinterland of Estepona to the ruins of one of the oldest Moorish castles in Andalusia, hidden in the hills at the foot of the Sierra Bermeja

nicio 02The "Castillo del Nicio", was built on the ruins of even older buildings, in the 9th century as a fortress for the protection of Estepona. The view from up there over the valley of the Río Castor and on the coast of Estepona is very beautiful.

In the warmer season, we walk down to the river Castor where we can have a swimm in the natural pool of the river. 
After the hike we will visit briefly the center of Estepona and can go to a typical tapas bar there.
