The last stage of the GR 247 runs along narrow traditional paths with splendid panoramic views.

Stage 20 of the GR 247 runs through land governed by black pines and calares, those flattened mountains so typical of this area. They are the absolute protagonists of this tour. The Route also passes through several points that offer impressive panoramic views, such as the Góntar pass. Plus, you may…February 28, 2023
This is a short stage, but full of surprises. Going into this Route you will enjoy extraordinary panoramic views from high points, immense pine forests and small villages of white houses lost in the mountains.

This stage has the Guadalentín river as its axis. Although the Route is quite long on its own, I have included a small detour at the beginning to reach the Guazalamanco waterfalls, since they are so incredible that it is well worth extending the route a bit.
Back on the main path of the GR, you will see…February 28, 2023
This stage runs through the mountains where the last maquis in the province of Jaén took refuge after the Civil War. You will go through the same paths that they used until 1952, when the last group of the Jaén resistance dissolved.
