El Rocillo


We leave the elevated part of the village from behind the church on a path leading along the old cemetery. Having crossed the bridge over the river Ovejuela, we walk through a zone of gardens and cultivations of fruit trees. After having passed a steep incline, we follow the path 3 or 4 times across the stream (we will have step from stone to stone), and reach the waterfall, an oasis of great beauty for life and nature.
