This route commences from the Plaza del Ingenio. Situated at 290 metres above sea level (30 S 0420162/ UTM 4072074). From here we walk along Avenida Carlos Cano towards the Torrox direction, leaving the sports pavilion behind us. After approx. 1000 metres we arrive at a small roundabout, go straight ahead, heading up hill towards the mountain, turning left after only a few metres, the track is situated adjacent to the restaurant Santo Cristo.
Follow this track for approx 700 metres where you will pass a small hamlet called “El Tejar” a place used originally for the making of bricks and tiles for the construction industry
Follow this track, passing the hotel rural “La Posada Morisca” until you reach a crossroads, marked as “Loma de la Cruz”, here turn right and continue until you reach the main tarmac road that connects Frigiliana to Torrox. Here turn left and continue the road until you reach a large plastic greenhouse on the right, adjacent to the road.
Immediately before the large plastic greenhouse, “ on the right” you´ll find the track we must take to reach our destination. It´s a dirt track that is a continuous winding slope. After the first few metres we´ll pass an old farm after which we´ll arrive at the finca, “old farm” known as, La Lastra, totally cultivated with olive trees yet sadly abandoned.
At the highest part of the farm we find the ruined building of an old cortijo that years previously belonged to a family from Frigiliana, they used the farm to harvest olives, grapes, wood and lime cal.
Once at the cortijo we can observe beautiful views of both Frigiliana and the coast down in Nerja.
To return we simply follow our steps back to Frigiliana.
