| THE UNIVERSE FROM EL BARTOLO |
We’ll meet the group in the car park of an iconic location: the Convento de los Carmelitas Descalzos, in the Desierto de las Palmas Natural Park. As we ascend through various historical sites and soak up some magnificent views, the sun will start to go down over the horizon. We’ll time our departure in such a way so that we reach “la carena” – an area of ridges where we’ll walk, almost flat, towards El Bartolo – as the sun is setting. We’ll have our dinner by the Alto del Bartolo cross, where Itinerantur will provide samples of local liqueurs and sweets. It will be there, in one of the highlights of this fabulous coastal range, where we’ll meet our friend the astronomer who, equipped with telescopes, will unveil the secrets of the cosmos to young and old. We’ll descend by starlight, assisted with torches and headlamps, enjoying the best views of La Plana as we round off an unforgettable experience.
