We turned up at Cortijo de Montana this afternoon to take a walk and found a flock of sheep and goats scattered over the land and ruins.
After a brief chat with the shepherd who was sitting with his dog in front of the buildings,
we set off along the track towards Cortijo del Fraile.
Instead of continuing along the usual path, we broke off to explore a track to the left which led us up to a ridge from which there are beautiful views down to the coast.
We noticed that the path continued down the ridge to the Rambla del Granaillo from which you can walk back up to Las Hortichuelas or down towards the coast at El Playazo – more walks for the future.
