“Make sure you follow the road right down to the bottom….." Said my hostel host. Bellasar is worth a visit. I was enjoying a pleasant descent which became a 10 kilometre free wheel whizz down through the trees and past a big dam. Suddenly there was a choice. Stay on the road over the massive viaduct to my next town 6 km away or drop down to Bellasar as recommended.
I carried on down down down 3 kilometres through a spectacular chasm of vineyards cut into steps across the hillside. Clearly this valley is a sun trap. It’s beautiful. White walls, tiled roofs, and ancient stone steps. At the bridge over the river there’s only one option, climb up steeply the other side. Make sure you look down!
