Castillo de Castro
Enjoying a beautiful hiking tour on the weekend is always a good idea. So join us this weekend on our hiking trip to the Castillo de Castro!
This track will definitely impress you. It will start in Alfondeguilla, we will pass through the Fonteta ravine (Barranco de la Fonteta) on our way to the castle and walk through a wonderful cork oak forest.
The Castillo de Castro, also known as Castrillo de Alfondeguilla due to its Arab origin, is located at an altitude of 787 metres, which is why it has also been used by the romans as a watchtower.
The track will take us about 2 hours and we will reward us with arriving at the castle. To get there, we will take the PR 138.
Description of the track:
Level of Difficulty: Medium
Highest point: almost 787 metres
Duration: 4 hours
Cuevas de San José (Caves of San José)
