Out for a walk

This year will be the nineteenth time that walkers have set out to follow the route that the poet Miguel Hernandez took from Orihuela to Alicante. The 70km journey takes 3 days to complete.

Yesterday 2,000 walkers set off from Orihuela stopping at Redován, Callosa de Segura, Cox and Granja de Rocamora beofer arriving at Albatera for the first night’s stop. Today they will continue through San Isidro to Elche.

Arranque senda poetaJosé Esteban Lorente has been appointed Walker of Honour 2015 for his courage in attempting the first two days of the walk in his wheelchair and for the numerous awards he has gained as an actor.

It makes you feel humble when you see someone like that taking part.
