Date: Tuesday, 14 June 2022

Night hike in the light of the full moon through a wonderful and mystical landscape with its karstic rock formations that look like artistic stone sculptures, created over millions of years

utrera night 02We start with a visit to the Roman Baths, a basin supposedly built by the Romans, where a sulphur spring rises. Those who wish can bathe in this pool, it smells of sulphur but leaves a pleasant sensation on the skin despite the smell. From there we drive up to the start of our route in the Sierra de la Utrera, an impressive rocky landscape that was formed in the Jurassic period and has developed into an amazing rocky landscape over millions of years through erosion. The first break is to watch the sunset and moonrise before continuing on a path that leads over rocks and stones. It is not particularly difficult, but requires confidence and good balance, especially at night, as we hike by moonlight and only take torches in case of emergency. We stop on a platform in the middle of this landscape to enjoy this magical place and spend a few moments in complete silence.
