Mecina Fondales actually consists of three separate villages: – Mecina, Mecinilla, and Fondales. These 3 villages form the lowest part of the Taha de Pitres (A Group of seven villages, Pitres being the main one).
Mecina Fondales, Ferreiola, Mecina , Mecinilla and Fondales are charming villages all connected to each other by a series of winding Roman paths, interwoven between mountains and rivers. These paths provide ideal conditions for gentle hiking as they meander among tiny old houses with pretty small balconies. The scenery is breathtaking and the villages all have bars and restaurants making them ideal for wandering about. During July and August these walks are rather unbearable due to the high temperatures but the winter and autumn months are perfect for hiking. There is plenty of drinking water in the different villages and each village has several bars. Mecina has also three good restaurants including a Pizzeria, a vegetarian restaurant and a hotel with restaurant.
