We were a group of 10 people hiking from the white washed town of Ardales along the Sendero "Los Jiménez-Fuente Garzón" to the Castillo de Turon. We began at an old Roman Bridge, the Puente de Molina, over the Turón River where we spotted some wagtails and egrets quenching their thirst. Soon the trail took us past flourishing olive groves, laden with juicy olives. We had hoped o see almond trees, and we weren't disappointed. Many were bursting with pretty pink flowers, while others were overburdened with almonds which we were happy to gather up and nibble on. The landscape as we ascended to the ruins was breathtaking - it overlooked the Chorro Dam on the Guadalhorce River, the Turon River, the Ardales valley and the road to El Burgo. Once we ascended to the Castle it was clear that it had seen better days as only sparse ruins remain. But the 360 views from the summit were amazing and a perfect spot for lunch and a doze under the warm sunlight. The trail we used to descend was rocky and unstable so I'd advise caution but it added to the exhilaration of the whole outing. We were lucky enough to have a local botanist in our group who was able to point out many local herbs and flowers. Overall the hike is quite easy but there is gradual elevation with a couple of short steep spots. Depending on where you descend, poles could come in handy. Our hike ended back in Ardales where there are not many bars are open on Sunday but we were able to get some flavourful tea at Bar El Melizo in Plaza El Isidro.

I love this little bridge. The fact that it's still there is remarkable, there is so much to see around this 2000+ year old crossing: we've seen turtles, frogs and snakes as well as many and various birds ...oh and the goat heards that are taken down in the afternoons to get a drink. If your in the neighbourhood, go for a visit. It's a nice way to spend a lazy half hour or so.
