GUIDED AND INTERPRETED ROUTE

Round to Benaojan along the Great Path of Malaga

                                                                                       15 kms

 

The route will cover a part of the Great Path of Malaga, a circular path that runs through the province of Malaga from east to east and from north to south. The section we will make links the city of Ronda with the town of Benaojan.

The route will begin in the gardens of the Alameda del Tajo, to go through all the viewpoints that overlook the cliffs of the plateau that surround the city by the west, among them, the famous Balcony of the Pussy.

You will cross the New Bridge, to enter the medieval and Islamic city, crossing some of its streets, to look for the door of the medieval wall, called Puerta del Viento, from which a stepped road leads to the impressive viewpoint of the New Bridge, at the bottom of the Tagus.

Once the photos have been taken, we return to the path that will lead us to the path of Los Molinos, through which we will arrive to the Port of La Muela, where we will begin to find beacons of the Great Path of Malaga that we will follow.

The trail goes down to the Guadiaro river, but before that, during a section it coincides with the road from Ronda to Benaojan for about 100 meters, a route in which we must all go with utmost care.

The Guadalcobacin stream will be crossed by a bridge and from here, the road runs for almost 3 km on a plain, parallel to the train track and the Guadiaro river, which will be left to the left of the march.

After reaching a level crossing to the left where the Cañada Real del Campo de Gibraltar runs, which crosses the Guadiaro river to continue along the left bank of the river, the path we will follow continues straight ahead, starting a climb by the old road from Benaojan to Ronda.

Shortly before reaching the port of Algarrobo, we will take a path that will take us to the Cave of the Cat and in its vicinity we will have lunch.

After that, we will go back up to the port, to start the descent that leads to the Poljé de Benaoján. We will cross the town, to take the road that leads us to the Benaoján station, where the tour will end, passing previously through the curious birth of El Santo.

ROUTE ATTRACTIONS

  • The views of the viewpoints of the Tagus Plateau
  • The New Bridge of Ronda
  • The medieval city of Ronda
  • The Mirador del Puente Nuevo from the Tajo de Ronda

This month's route runs along the El Rocío road used by the Rocian Brotherhoods that come from the province of Huelva.

It will begin in the vicinity of the former forest village of Los Cabezudos, now abandoned, and then enter a preserved area within the Doñana National Park, the Rocina Stream Protection Zone.

Soon the cat pine forest will be crossed, shortly after approaching the gallery forest of the stream of La Rociana, which will continue for the rest of the route until arriving at the village of El Rocio.

At km 7.5 we will leave the road, to get closer to the lagoon and the Acebrón Palace, where lunch is possible.

After this break, the road will resume, but taking a path that runs parallel to the Rocina stream and the Cañada stream. After crossing this stream, the road continues along the cattle route of La Rocina to the village of Rocio.

This month's Route begins in the town of Gilena, which we will cross from south to north, passing through the source of the karst aquifer in the mountains known as El Ojo de Gilena.

We begin to climb a track that will later become a path that will take us to the heart of the Sierra. Upon reaching a crossroads in a hill, we take the path on the left, in a southwest direction, until we reach the so-called Corralones, former settlement of shepherds in the mountains.

From there we will go to the viewpoint of Acebuchal, with an impressive view of the entire western slope of the Sierra (from here Marchena, Paradas and Arahal can be seen) and where there is also an old refuge of shepherds made of limestone.

From the viewpoint we will go down the Loma de los Colchones, then go up to Las Llanadas. After crossing the local Gilena road to Pedrera, we will pass from the Sierra de Juarez to the Sierra del Becerrero.

A path will take us to Estepa, passing under the Tajos de los Monteros, where some centennial almond trees are preserved. In the meadows developed under them we will eat, to enter afterwards to Estepa through the area of Trascastillo and from there go up to San Cristobal Hill.

The route will end with a guided visit to the monumental complex of the Hill (Castle, convent and Church) and a subsequent visit to the facilities of the La Estepeña butter factory, with a tasting of its products.
