Dawn breaks in Hondón de los Frailes valley and a beautiful picture of white and pinkish colours announces that the almond blossom has arrived.
A marvel of nature that we can enjoy at this time of year in all its splendour and that makes its way from the coldest days of winter to spring, when they fall as if they were snowflakes.
What better plan than to go for a walk through the fields full of almond blossom in Hondón de los Frailes and all the nearby villages that make up the Hondón valley.
We tell you one of the best routes, walk along the path of the hermitage of San Antón de Hondón de los Frailes, go up to the path of the Serranos, cross paths and treat yourself to one of the best floral pictures of the area. Observe its delicate flowers and contemplate a chromatic range of colours that go from white to pink. For a few minutes you will leave your worries aside, it is said that the scent of flowers helps to release stress...
The almond blossom is also loaded with symbolism. The Greek gods associated it with procreation and in Egypt it was considered a symbol of prosperity.
