Senda al Corazón de Las Hurdes


Go out from the locality "Cambroncino" direction to "Caminomorisco", go to the top of the hill, which joins the two localities, walking about 500 Metres from the first one. Follow the path on the right side finding various valleys on the way. From these valleys it is possible to see the localities "Cambrón" and "Caminomorisco" in the distance. After enjoying of these marvellous views go the way back until arriving to the viewpoint called "Mirador de Alavea" and also called "Chorreón del Tajo". From that point it is possible to appreciate the nice waterfalls. Follow the path and after approximately one Kilometre you will arrive to a deviation. Follow the new path going from this deviation and leading to the hill "Alto del Pimpollar". Cross the firebreak and take the new forest path on the right. Leave your car at the end of that path. Continue by foot going the hill down leading to the famous "Chorro de la Miacera" on the right and the Vulcan "Volcán de El Gasco".

We recommend to make a stop at the firebreak on the way back and enjoy the nice view of the tow localities "Fragosa" and "Martilandrán". Continue the way back and take the road EX-204, which joins the localities "Caminomorisco" (2 Kilometres) and "Pinofranqueado" (3 Kilometres).
