Lombo las viñas

Trajectory

The trajectory begins at the village "Horcajo" following the path where all the orchards are. Cross the river and a couple of woods populated by pines and follow walking until you find another path going to the right, cross the firebreak and continue following the path until you arrive to see a chestnut-wood. There you will find a new path to follow, cross the pinewood, the chestnut-wood and then the stream. From that point you will have a marvellous view of the town "Gascos", and also the surroundings.
