nice and spectacular walk with hanging bridges, easy to extend with other descend (less People)

Great walk. Easy to come of track due to multiple other routes around. Well worth doing.

A nice and easy walk for all family.

Interesting. A keen observer will find Islamic influances mixed with Catholic motives, not only in architecture, but also in music - cf. flamenco. Go slowly.

We did this walk slightly different which made it slightly longer.
It's an easy walk with great views of Sella and the surrounding mountains. Gorgeaous scenery!
Sella is a lovely small village to end your walk with a coffee on the Plaza Major.

difficult parking on the main road. the loop can be added to by walking towards Santiago del teide and La Mancha on well signposted trail.

Very good fun. We took some public transport to get from the Sagrada to the park and from the park to the Casa Mila but that's more because we're lazy rather than because it's easier to do. Definitely worth your time and very pretty things around.

We did this on a rainy day in San Sebastian and it was great! Fun workout to the top of the hill that you see from La Concha beach. Easy enough for kids to make it up (we had our 6 year old and a 9 year old with us and they both did great). Lots of folks with dogs as well. Really cool views at the top and a surprisingly good small museum that's worth a quick exploration.

Great walk lots to see to include the side streets. The Born District is not fa from here. Be aware of your surroundings due to the pickpocketers. Make sure you check out the La Boqueria Food Market.

Really nice place to hike. There are enough routes I only saw one mountain biker on the trail.
A small part of the last part of the route, when walking clockwise, the buches were quite dense.

It is an amazing experience walking around the perimeter of the walls. There are some parts you can walk following the allure (wall-walk). The views are so beautiful. And if you love Middle Ages, this is your place to revisit history.

Visitors can walk around the entire perimeter of the walls on the outside. Inside, it is more complicated since many areas around the footings are part of private or public enclosures. The route that offers the best view follows the allure (top of the walls) along a length of around 1700 m and is open to the public. However, the necessary preparation work on the south face has yet to be completed.

Visitors to the city of Ávila don’t always follow the route around the entire perimeter of the walls. This is also logical because it is a "stroll" of almost three kilometres. However, we recommend it. It is worth the effort if you want to appreciate the grandeur of the walls and discover some of the not so well-known places of picturesque beauty.

Nice pedestrian street

Nice place for a trail run! Parking place is about 200/300 meters from the entrance of the path, so you need to walk a bit further up the road to get there...
Interesting and spooky place when it’s cloudy, but really nice views!

I enjoyed this walk, made a few wrong turns, there are green and white signs marking the route so keep a look out, I walked it anti-clockwise, towards the last quarter is a relatively steep climb, take water and hat, saw cats, dogs, gecko’s and the odd chicken, but no wild boar :) walked it April 20th so nice temperature.

Great walk with lot of activities and beautiful structures, markets, street vendors, La Bouqueria Market.

Seville is beautiful city with good foods, one can find lot of historical architectural buildings present Catholicism and Islamic from thousand of years. Flamenco dancers performed on many corners.

Vibrant Seville with flamingo dancers on street, great restaurants and good snack foods. We spent a whole day walking around this lovely city.

Beautiful Alhambra walking and light hiking day trip.

It was a lovely unexpected walk we did with our 14 month old daughter in a baby rucksack. Took us 2.5hrs with a stop for a picnic half way. It’s a good family trail.

Easy walking for couple of 55+. Park about 1km south. Track well marked, good underfoot. Remember it's cooler than on the coast. Nice scenery!

A lovely, very easy walk. Some beautiful views.

Easy walking for couple of 70+. Need to park about 1km south. Track well marked + good underfoot. Remember it's cooler than on the coast + altitude higher than anywhere in UK.

We didn't expect there would be a mini hike to get to the tourist area but the short trail had a view great view of the city.

It's a very nice trail but in my experience it deserves to be in the medium category. It's called kid friendly but I will strongly advice against taking kids younger than 14-15 years along on this hike.

I explored southern Spain in early-November, driving from Madrid, after an epic pilgrimage walking the Camino de Santiago (plug for the Camino: it was one of the best -- if not the best -- experiences of my life). Alhambra became one of my highlights of Spain too, particularly since its Moorish architecture was a first for me. I took a tour that included a shuttle bus pick-up at the fountain square in Granada, but walked back to the city via the route shown here after touring Alhambra and Generalife.

Alhambra is one of those precious gems of the world. I was entranced by the tiled patterns and left wanting to craft something earthy with my hands, inspired by the artisanal decorations throughout. In short: it's a definite must while visiting Spain.

A couple things I would have done differently, knowing what I know now: 1) use Seville as my home base (instead of staying a night in Granada; I much prefer Seville, especially Barrio Santa Cruz) and take one of the many day-tours from Seville to Alhambra, and 2) visit Alcazar of Seville before Alhambra (their architecture are similar, but Alhambra blows Alcazar away. Since I saw Alhambra first, Alcazar was a bit disappointing).

Very interesting architecture. Very popular.
