We depart from the Hotel Altos de Istán. Right behind it we will see a fenced water deposit (30S-0326229 / UTM-4049892), we will take the right-hand path. We walk along this path barely a kilometre and in the meanwhile enjoy the views this route provides along the right-hand side. On a left-hand bend a first path goes off to the right and this is the one we must take (30S-0325801 / UTM-4049360) and then we will be in the recreation area of the Ermita de San Miguel, where we will be able to enjoy the lovely views at the end of the path we took and which ends in an esplanade (30S-0325616 / UTM-4049261). To reach the Ermita we will go half-way down the recreation zone and to the right at the end we will find it. The return will be along the same path to the municipal hotel.
