1. Levada do Caldeirao Verde
Distancia: 13 Km (ida y vuelta) 980 m 890m Tiempo: 5,30h.
Una de las más famosas, la levada do Caldeirão Verde en el Parque Forestal de Queimadas, cerca de Santana. levada que nos lleva hasta la Caldera Verde, PR 9.
Se puede hacer entero en seis horas o una pequeña parte de una hora ida y otra vuelta hasta una de las cascadas principales del recorrido.
Comienza con casonas con tejados de paja y sigue un canal del siglo XVIII entre hayas o cedros centenarios. Por el camino surgen altas cascadas cuyo vapor es fácil que te empape. Si lo haces, recuerda llevar buen calzado (y meter otro de repuesto en la maleta) porque hay partes del sendero que se transforman en un auténtico barrizal. Esta ruta está esculpida en la roca en gran parte de su recorrido y se atraviesan varios túneles y cascadas para llegar el final del recorrido. En invierno, el camino suele estar húmedo y será muy probable que nos mojemos. En todo el sendero hay vallas protectoras para las zonas más aéreas que son bastantes aunque no presentan ninguna dificultad.
Si yo hubiera sabido que a menos de dos horas de vuelo iba a encontrar este paraíso, sin duda hubiera viajado a descubrirlo mucho antes. Madeira, la isla de la eterna primavera, goza de un clima espectacular durante todo el año, volcanes, ríos subterráneos, cascadas que brotan de cualquier esquina, selvas y bosques de laurisilva, playas de arena negra, picos donde llega a nevar en invierno… los atractivos de este archipiélago perdido en mitad del océano Atlántico son infinitos y muy sorprendentes.
Es un destino ideal si eres una persona activa y amante de la naturaleza. Si te gusta caminar por senderos de pura naturaleza debes saber que Madeira es uno de los mejores escaparates para hacerlo. Aquí lo típico son las rutas por levadas, que son canales/acueductos creados en el siglo XVI con el que trasladaban el agua, y lo siguen haciendo hoy día, desde los puntos de la isla donde llueve mucho a aquellos en los que no llueve tanto. Conforman una red de más de 2500 kilómetros. Junto a estas levadas hay caminos más o menos estrechos (a veces vas al ras del agua y el acantilado, mientras que otras veces hay un amplio margen) que … Ir al post
I was 8 years old and it was the first time I was traveling by plane. My family decided to spend a Christmas in the Canary Islands and we spent a week in the south of Tenerife. Spending Christmas day at 25 degrees bathing on the beach without a doubt influenced the idea of paradise that I have always had in mind when referring to the fortunate islands.
I have been lucky enough to visit many of these islands (to this day I still miss La Palma and El Hierro… I like to leave the best for last) and until now Tenerife would be in fourth place behind Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and La Gomera and ahead of Gran Canaria.
It depends a lot on what you are looking for on your trip. If you are looking for a family destination, with diversity of offer (from dolphin / cetacean sightings, sun and beach, hiking, gastronomy, leisure parks, etc …) and practically good weather all year round, this is your trip.
Tenerife is the most extensive island of the Canary archipelago and the most populated of Spain (almost 900,000 inhabitants). Its capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, is also the only capital of the … Ir al post
Having a travel blog, being from Granada and not having any entry on my wonderful city is unforgivable, so here are some tips for places to visit, restaurants to eat and tips that will be useful during your stay.
If you are looking for accommodation in this city, take a look at the family tourist apartments and contact me without problem to check availability and prices.
A little bit of history
Legend says Granada owes its name to one of the daughters of Noah or Hercules called “Granata”, although in the history of Granada its name is documented before the Arab conquest in the Jewish neighborhood of “Garnata”.
In the year 306 the Council of Elvira was celebrated, the first of Spain. The three populations that existed during the Muslim invasion (Elvira, Qastilla and Garnata) depended on the Caliphate of Cordova. At the end of the 11th century the Almoravid invasion ended the Zirid dynasty and in 1237 the constitution of the Kingdom of Granada was completed, which remained the last Muslim stronghold until 1492.
In the fourteenth century, during the reigns of Yusuf I and Muhammad V, Granada lived its maximum splendor. At that time the whole of the … Ir al post
I don’t know if it’s because I’m from Granada and Andalusia, but for me Granada has much more to visit besides the Alhambra and the city. We are lucky to have in the same province culture, beach and mountain. I could make an endless list of places and beautiful villages to admire, but since you come for tourism, and not to live, I will mention the essentials. So if you are so lucky to have more than a couple of days to enjoy this magnificent city, here are other places that deserve a visit:
SIERRA NEVADA. (32KM = 40 MIN)
Sierra Nevada is the highest mountainous massif of the peninsula. Its highest peak is the Mulhacen (3482m) and has the most southern ski resort in Europe. You can drive to the altitude of 2500 meters and here you can decide between spending a day at the skiing station or leaving the car in the free parking at the height of the Virgen de las Nieves and spend a great day with sledges.
It’s also a highly recommended option if you come in summer, since in addition to the ski area there are many trails for hiking. The views are amazing. … Ir al post

It is difficult to find the words to describe the majesty of the Norwegian fjords. Personally, it is one of the best tourist destinations in the world. In a single day you can admire its mountains, fjords, waterfalls, glaciers, cultural landscapes, its people and its cities. The National Geographic Traveler magazine was not mistaken in describing it as “the most emblematic destination in the world.” You do not travel to the attractions of Fjord Norway, you go in. The journey itself by road is an experience. The landscape varies continuously and has attracted visitors from all over the world for centuries. You go from one special place to another, although it is the set of everything that makes the total attraction.
The fjords are not a place in Norway: they are a place in the world. They are a UNESCO World Heritage Site very well preserved. The reason is that this show is not a stage, but a living society. A vital landscape where people live in mutual dependence on nature. Roads meander through this region. Behind each curve there is a new lookout. The landscape changes from the high mountain to the leafy lowlands. … Ir al post
Less than 2 hours by car from London, Brighton is one of the most beautiful but still less known cities in the United Kingdom. The national tourists know it well, since the great part of the tourism of this city is English. However, Brighton has endless possibilities to contribute to anyone who decides to visit the south of England to enjoy an atypical city.
Brighton is a city that we can visit at any time of year, but without a doubt the star station is the summer where the city fills with color, festivals, music and atmosphere. It is also one of the largest and best-known coastal cities in the United Kingdom. It has a long promenade and a beach, although it is not of fine sand, it is magnificent to forget that you are in cold Britain.
Its climate is warm, arriving in summer at 25-28 degrees. This makes it a very popular destination with more than 8 million visitors per year. It has a large number of hotels of all categories, varied restaurants, shops and places of leisure that make it an ideal place to spend a few days of rest. The truth is that there … Ir al post
