Pizara (starting somewhat outside)

Start Point:
Take the A7 towards Malaga and then the new A7 around Malaga. Exit when you see a sign for Malaga (oeste) and Cartama (exit 232). Take the left lane in the exit towards Caratama. You will then come down to another highway (A-357) and you should go north. Continue on this road (it will later be a normal one) until you reach a sign for A-343 Pizarra and Álora. Exit here. A bit further on (pretty soon) there is a sign for Pizarra (right) and another one for Álora (straight ahead) go towards Pizarra. After a little more than a kilometre you will be crossing a narrow bridge over a river and soon another one over the railway. Continue towards the village and you will soon be entering a roundabout. Go straight through it (second exit), you will find yourself on an avenue with industrial property on the right. After a little more than a kilometre you can see a BP-station. Find a parking spot (there are a lot of them on the street running parallel to the one you are on) and come towards the BP-station. When you get there you can find a number of bars on both sides of the street. The one opposite the BP-station offers you a place in the sun (if it is visible), that’s where I am going to be. We will go to the starting point at about 10:30 so if you want any coffee, be there at 10:00.
