This unspoilt spot is one of the least known gifts from nature in our region. Near Fortuna we can find this seasonal creek flowing along and extremely narrow ravine. Locals call it ‘’the little Palestina’’ because of its clay soil and the surrounding swamp with its cane population, which remind us of that faraway exotic place.
It can make a fantastic family day trip. To make the most of the experience I recommend walking along the stream. Don’t forget to wear a swimsuit because you won’t always find a path along the brook.
UNIRRIGATED FIELDS IN CARTAGENA
This man-made landscape is in its prime in the winter, when almond trees blossom. A combination of multitude shades of pink and white is scattered all over the ploughed fields. This colourful view is enhanced by the grey outline of the mountain range and the clear blue sky. The smell is something to add to this visual fest. Honey-like aroma penetrates the air.
These long abandoned unirrigated fields of almond trees seem to be in their heyday. The rise in the price of almond following the droughts in California has lured farmers into setting up irrigation systems.
A lovely family Sunday walk where children can run freely along the numerous intermingling paths.
