Now that the weather has cooled, a good walk can be enjoyed and if you don’t like hills we recommend a gentle 6km stroll around the vega of Huetor Tajar. Cross the bridge over the Rio Genil coming out of Huetor Tajar and turn left. These virtually traffic free lanes will bring you out on the edge of the industrial estate near the motorway. From here the Town Hall have laid out a very pleasant walkway which will take you back to the bridge through Venta Nueva. There are some excellent views across the vega towards Huétor Tájar and over to the Sierra de Loja.
Along this path the Town Hall have erected several boards explaining the agriculture, architecture and history of the area including a mention of Eugenia de Montijo, who was from Huétor Tájar. She was the wife of the Emperor Napolean 111 of France. She was born in Granada in 1826 and died in Madrid in 1920. Instead of planting flowers in the beds along this walk the Town Hall has planted a variety of aromatic herbs including rosemary, lavender, sage, oregano and thyme.
