Description of the route

This route connects up different stretches already covered on the other routes. You will take different paths through olive groves and vineyards that lead you to the Buendia reservoir where you can visit the submerged village of “La Isabela”. From here you can continue to the municipality of Córcoles where you can fill up your water bottles in the different fountains on the pediment. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Monsalud Monastery. The longest uphill stretch of the route begins here and takes you up to the crest of the mountain range where you will be rewarded with the downhill Cartero path. This path is great fun and rather technical. It leads back to the municipality of Sacedón, but first runs close to the Entrepeñas reservoir again.
