Puerto del Aire

Puerto del Aire (937 m.a.s.l.) – the last pass to be climbed, a bit hidden but amazing, and my favourite one; a nice surface, no traffic, great views and a good percentage. Especially the first km is impressive where you will see some walls. Average grade is not high, so you will get several cooler parts to warm you up during all 8km.

Start from village Serrato, it is a bit windy almost all of the year, hence the name 'Aire' (air). The whole climb is in the form of stairs, so with every kilometer comes a short relaxing part. In the middle of ascent you will enter pinewoods, so wind and strong sun will be eliminated until reaching the highest point.

Descent to village El Burgo, again in form of stairs, is with beautiful views over Sierra Prieta and Sierra de las Nieves.
