Itinerary description

Driving route through the Sierra Lalo (Sierra del Alo) to Puerto del Aire, where the winds can be so powerful you can hardly walk. Supposedly this is due to the Venturi Effect. One kilometer away it could be hot and sultry, while at Puerto del Aire you could experience cold foggy weather with hurricane force winds.
