The Escalera Arabe – the Arabic staircase
A hike up the Arabic staircase is a classic route and the most popular walk in the Desfiladero de Los Gaitanes Natural Park. If doing one hike in the area, this should be it.
The exact origins of the staircase are unknown. The general consensus is that they were built in the 15C by Mozarabs as part of their trading routes.
This is the view from the top of the Arabic staircase.
Most of the routes up the Arabic staircase are linear. You go up and come back down the same way you came.
