Antigua is hiking in Guisguey

Antigua's Ayuntamiento organised a hiking programme with ten routes that cover the most emblematic locations in each municipality. This initiative invites participants to discover hiking routes in the municipality and the other municipalities of the island, combining this healthy activity with the discovery of emblematic and interesting locations. In May, the third hike took place in the Guisguey area, with a guide who provided information on the areas of cultural or ethnographic interest, visiting the village, the dam, the barranco and many interesting sites which can only be accessed by walking. They also hiked on the route proposed by the project “Antigua se mueve, conoce tu isla” that was proposing to discover the Barranco de los enamorados in La Oliva, with a medium to low difficulty level hike, which made a nice end to the hike for participants. Registration was free and the number of places was limited, giving priority to people aged over 14 years old, residents in the Municipality of Antigua. A total of ten routes have been planned by the Ayuntamiento of Antigua. After hiking through Antigua, Malpaís de la arena in La Oliva, Guisguey in Puerto del Rosario, the Barranco de los enamorados in La Oliva, the hikes will continue with the Gran Montaña in Tiscamanita, on June 11th, Toto and La Vega, on July 9th, a nocturnal hike in Mafasca in Antigua, on July 23rd, Los Molinos, on September 24th, Cofete, on October 8th, and Isla de Lobos, on November 12th.
