    Sunday hike

     

    Sunday at 9:30h those interested are welcome to join us for a walk to “El faro del Albir” and the Natural Park of Serra Gelada. A minibus will take us to the entrance of the Park (about 30-40 minute ride). Then we will walk to the lighthouse. The walk is very easy, mostly paved, but the sights are quite nice since it is by the coast. Remember to bring water, a hat, and sun screen, since it might get a bit hot. We will be back to the hotel by 13:30h.

    Those interested please send an email to mj.caturla@ua.es before Friday, June 6.
