San Antonio del Monte




  • San Antonio del Monte

    • Descripction: This is an area adjacent to a small, 1,000 metre hill, surrounded by laurel forest vegetation. It has basic services, but you can only stay for one night. The camp site is located a short distance from the tiny church of the same name. This chapel was the destination for a centuries-old pilgrimage and the venue for a popular livestock fair every June. The area is half way between the two nature reserves of the district: The Guelguen Special Reserve (towards the coast) and El Pinar de Garafia (towards the mountains).
    • Access: You can get as far as the ring road (now known as the LP-1, previously the C-830) by public transport. Opposite the Pecan petrol station, ther is an unmade track – although it is O.K. for cars – that leads for just over a kilometre to the chapel. The camp site is about 150 metres north west of the church.
    • Facilities: Drinking water, grills, benches, children’s playground.
    • Accommodation: Free
    • Overnight stays?: Yes
