Clothing and food:
– Clothing: It’s late fall. It can be hot if the day is not cloudy, but the first and last hours can be cold. Therefore, warm clothing is recommended. Comfortable footwear, we will not carry out routes that require special footwear.
– Food: I can hire a typical Spanish menu from a friend’s restaurant (paella, potato omelette and salmorejo, with a drink included) to eat in the countryside, in the Sierra de Cabra. Tomorrow the price and the minimum number of people needed to be able to do it could pass. The rest of the participants who do not want to eat this menu can eat in the area where there are numerous picnic areas..
