We walked the gorge today and it wasn't very busy. We chose to park at Ota as the Evisa end of the hike is less interesting with a rather monotonous rocky incline or decline depending on your direction of travel (although not too strenuous and it is shady). If you walk to the third and last of the three bridges from Ota - Pont de Zaglia, it takes around an hour and you will still have enough energy to walk back. This is the most picturesque section of the hike with great gorge and mountain views and several places where you can have a dip in the river. If, however, you want to continue the walk on to Evisa its around another 1 hour 15 mins so a fairly long 4.5 hours for the return trip. You could get a taxi back from Ota to Evisa if you park at that end so you walk down more than up but it will cost around 50 euro. There are several cafes/restaurants in the attractive old hill town of Ota.

Early in the morning we took the easy drive (there is a difficult drive, if you choose) from Porto harbour up to Ota. Surprising the big bridge, Ponte Vecchju is along the way by the road that we caught a glimpse while zooming by. We parked simply before the double bridges and took the entrance into the left gorge (facing east). Oops... mistake, after after a few hundred metres it’s stops at a man made barrage. However this gorge is most charming with water always flowing beside the trail. Second try to Gorges de la Spelunca to search for the 13th century Genoese bridge, Pont génois de Zaglia. The trail is well sign, so quite straight forward with minor ups and downs. Finally, we back track across the soccer field to have a wonderful view of the tall Pont Vecchiu. Very much worth 2 hours wandering around those 4 pieces of ancient infrastructure.

At 7:30am this road from Porto to Ota and then on towards Evisa, was absolutely beautiful. The scale of the valley and the mountains is a humbling experience. Although Ota is far away from all the activities of Porto, I think it is absolutely spectacular up there, and would have loved to sleep over there instead of in the busy, boring buildings of Porto. The road takes time to do too, as it is very winding to negotiate. Once past Ota, the road becomes even narrower in places, and rather precarious too. Fortunately, in late June, we encountered no oncoming traffic between 7:00am - 9:00am. The only obstacles in our rugged path were a number of goats, who seemed totally unphased by us. I enjoyed this drive much more than the Calanques de Piana drive, maybe because there was no one else when we visited whereas the Piana road was packed with cars and tourists.
