Almond blossom can be seen in the early spring on the route from Monda to Ojen.

Stay on the A-355 and you won't get lost. The scenery is more mountainous here with uncultivated, wild countryside while, a little further on, there is a right turn which leads to the valley of the hotel, Refugio de Juanar, built on the foundations of a hunting palace.

The road continues to Ojen through forests of pine, eucalyptus and oak and past the mirador: it's camera clicking time again. Up over the Ventorillo del Puerto and on to the town which stands at an altitude of 650 feet. Ojen is a very pretty village with plazas, gushing fountains, white-washed walls and some particularly characterful bars where dominoes and local chess tournaments reign forth at all times of the day and night.

Continue down the hill with the coast in sight for our Ojen to Marbella route.
