Day 4

Los Cahorros de Monachil
It’s time to move on and say goodbye to Lanjaron as we head towards Granada. A short drive takes us to a spectacular walk along the Cahorros de Monachil. A real gem that includes walking across the hanging bridges that span the spectacular gorge and river Monachil, walking through the throat of the river with 150 ft high limestone walls that then open up to rolling meadows of wild flowers. After lunch at the best restaurant in Monachil you are taken to the Hotel Dauro in the centre of Granada with a free afternoon to enjoy the sights of Granada that include the barrio Albaicin, the Jewish quarter of El Realejo or the sunset over the Alhambra Palace from San Nicolas viewpoint.
