QUOTE FROM BACK COVER 
"The third book in a series of walks in this beautiful area of Spain, Patrick Elvin has compiled a fine collection of circular day walks which range from ascents to 1400 metres to walks in the Genal and Guadiaro valleys. Based on 40 years knowledge of the region, these walks are a unique anthology and take advantage of the recent development of marked paths as well as locally sourced traditional rights of way."
