Staying inside a national park, picnic is not a bad idea in Mendiga. They have prepared a small area, very well arranged and decorated, not difficult to find by the road to Arrimal. We didn't use, because we had better, but kept it in mind for an eventual occasion.
Sometimes you need to leave everything, forget the tension of each day life and meet nature, with is calm and simplicity. That may be done in the wild, or with some comfort.
We decided to do it in New Year's eve, with a party close to home for logistic reasons, and far enough to provide the desired break.
A group of a dozen people gathered in Casa da Forja, and for a couple of days, had fun cooking, talking, and walking in the pure natural area.
It was nice.
