The Guadalhorce Valley, a paradise for hikers


Casa El Corasueño (Andalusia) is located in the middle of the Guadalhorce valley and creates the perfect starting point for beautiful walks. After a solid breakfast you can lace your hiking boots and discover the authentic village Almogía, a typical ‘pueblo blanco’ located only 20 minutes’ walking from our b&b. Discover the beautiful squares, churches and watchtower as you pass through the narrow streets of this friendly white town. Almogía features 4 signposted walking routes, one of which passes our b&b. This route is 7 km long with a beautiful sight of the region behind every corner.
