The beautiful rocks of San Bartolo mountain, only a few kilometers from the hotel, combine classic routes with sport climbing routes for all levels. In addition, they are protected from the wind and offer the possibility of climbing throughout the year thanks to the mild climate of the area. The rock consists of compact sand and limestone. Most of the routes measure about 25 metres long although there are also some with a length of up to 80 metres. There are even some boulder areas to enjoy (climbing without a rope and without harness).
