A morning in the hills North of Granada City.

Our son Alan is visiting at the moment, so we decided that it would be good to do a short walk to the Civil War trenches. The trail passes through some beautiful countryside with some stunning views. The trenches have been restored / rebuilt and make for an interesting visit once you have been to the very well located and run visitor's center.
The walk is a gentle upward amble through pine woodlands to the summit of the hill. On the way several Cardinal Fritillaries (Argynnis pandora), Striped Graylings (Pseudotergumia fidia), Dusky Heath (Coenonympha dorus), Cardinal Fritillary (Argynnis pandora) and Scarce Swallowtail (Iphiclides podalirius feisthameli) were seen along with several other species.
