This remarkably varied walking path tracks the Río Tajo through a steep-sided gorge where you’ll feel as if you’ve left the city far behind (although urban life reverberates only metres above you). It stretches between the Azarquiel and San Martín bridges and includes some relatively wild stretches where a wooden walkway has been stapled to the rock face.

Morning joggers weave around fishers and hikers. If you’re up for a longer excursion, the path forms part of the GR113 which follows the Tajo for multiple miles in either direction.
