groves spread out on the left hand side of the road. Walk about
hundred meters, and fork right uphill on a track that runs parallel with the

you come to the Olbis fountain (1h55min) (770 m). The track narrows into a path
by ruins of a house (2h05min) (720 m), and starts zig-zaging
downhill to an almond grove. When the

When you come to an asphalt road (2h37min) (550 m), turn left. Ignore all
sideroads until you find a concrete walkway with a white-yellow waymark on your
