Trajectory

Go out from "Casar de Palomero", direction "Pinofranqueado", following the road going parallel to the right side of the river "Los Angeles", and crossing the localities "Azabal" and "Pedro Muñoz". After passing the locality "Mesegal" you will arrive to "Caminomorisco". The next destination is "Vegas de Coria", you will arrive there after passing the locality "Cambroncino". Return to the locality "Vegas de Coria" and take at its entrance the path on the left. This path goes along the river "Hurano" and will take you to the locality "Rubiaco" and then "Nuñomoral". About 300 Metres from there you will find a deviation direction "El Gasco"(going along the river "Malvellido") and pass the localities "Cerezal", "Martilandrán" and "Fragosa". From "El Gasco" return to "Nuñomoral" and follow the same road as before to go to "Casares de Hurdes", passing before the locality "Asegur". "Casares de Hurdes" is also known by the name "The balcony of Las Hurdes" because of the marvellous views from the vi ewpoint in town. Take the road to "Ciudad Rodrigo" and before coming into the new province, take the deviation to "Ladrillar".

Curiosities

You can find typical architecture all along the trajectory, for example in "Casar de Palomero". We advice you to visit there the "Casa (house) de Acadio Terrón", where the King Alfonso XIII stayed during one night. The room where he slept stay nowadays in the same state as when the king left it. Other interesting places to visit are the hermitage "Ermita de la Cruz Bendita", the church "El Espíritu Santo" and the old part of the town, where it is still possible to see some rest from the Arabic, Jewish and Christian cultures. In the town "Cambroncino" you can visit the church "Iglesia de Santa Catalina", also visited by the Kind Alfonso XIII, and one of the most important monuments of the community. The localities "La Horcajada" and "La Batuequilla" are also very nice to visit and with a natural and ethnographic charm.
