Map of the Spelunca trail we saw in Èvisa


The route runs along an old mule road that unites the populations of Ota and Èvisa. Through it we enter a deep forest under the imposing walls of the mountains that make up a deep and long canyon.

The beginning of the path from Èvisa begins at the end of the town coming from the interior. Right next to the cemetery you can park and from there start the excursion. The road mixes stone, stairs and earth in a deep descent that reminds us of the ascension that we must make to return to the starting point. Round trip can take approximately four hours at normal pace.

We leave it when we reach a Genoese-style bridge called Zaglia. We cool off in the river and start the hard climb back to the Èvisa cemetery.

Before arriving at the car we met a group of wild boars in the middle of the road. Most of them got scared and ran to hide inside the forest. However, a couple of them bet and marked the territory without moving an apex. I had nothing clear. We stand still staring at the animals. They still didn't move. I grabbed a stick that I found on the ground and began to step forward firmly but slowly. He swung the stick high in a threatening posture. The wild boars stared at me and when I crossed the imaginary line of respect they jumped for a run and hid in the forest. We passed the area trying to make the minimum noise. Really wild boars are animals that impose and who knows if they feel threatened and can give them to attack you.
