  • In spring and summer it is advisable to use sun protection cream and wear a baseball cap, hat or similar as protection from the sun.
  • In autumn and winter, and to a lesser extent during spring, it is advisable to bear in mind the possibility of rain and to avoid following the itinerary if these meteorological conditions are forecast, given that a good part of the route takes place on open ground.
  • Comfortable light clothing is recommended.
  • In Puerta Verde, starting point and end to the itinerary, there are two wells. However, it is advisable to take sufficient water to remain hydrated throughout the itinerary. There are also different rest areas along the route.
