This time we start from the town of Navezuelas, through which the Almonte River passes.
We will take an old path that preserves some cobbled sections. Ascending, we leave the Carpintero peak (1,271 m) to the right until we reach the Collado de la Pariera (1,240 m), located in the Sierra Tejadilla and continue to the Collado de los Ajos (1,220 m). From here you can see the Villuerquina or Appalachense formation of the Sierras de Guadalupe, from where we contemplate the white peaks of the Sierras de Gredos in the distance.
We descend towards the Valle del Viejas through some remote places that Alfonso XI frequented, where he liked to hunt in these lands and even spear bears. This landscape offers us small orchards dotted with cherry and chestnut trees.
We ascend to the Collado de la Arena, where the route crosses the road. Near this place (taking the old military base), is the Pozo de las Nieves, made to provide ice to the Monastery, especially to meet the needs of its infirmary and apothecary. We continue on our way and this time we do it going up to see large oak groves, repopulated pine groves and olive groves.
Once we arrived at the hermitage of Humilladero, (beautiful hermitage from the 15th century declared
Historical-Artistic Monument) we begin to descend along the old water path, parallel to the EX-118 road (Guadalupe-Navalmoral de la Mata), until we reach the threshing floor, an old area used to punish criminals. We will stop to see magnificent views that Puebla de Guadalupe offers us, from where we will see the majestic Monastery
We continue on our way to enter Guadalupe along Calle San
Jerónimo, continuing along Alfonso XI until reaching the Plaza de Sta. María to rest.
