Navas del Marqués Watchtower

We started from the town of Navas del Marqués, Ávila. In the direction of the Risco del Dinero where we visited the first watchtower of the day. We continue and we go down the path of the firewall of the Tarayuela. We pass through the Fuente del Verato and we approach the Atalaya del Picorzo. At its descent we find remains of the Civil War.

We go through the Arenal Pine, the Valerian House and we arrive at the Valladal watchtower.

We continue towards the Ermita del San Miguel and we enter the Mountain Urbanization, Ducal City, where we visit the famous Atalaya de Eiffel. And we continue our way through its marshes, the Arroyo Retuerta and the reservoir of the Ducal City.

We continue in the direction of the big house now in ruins and climb towards the Cerro del Navalvillar. We cross through a tunnel the CL-505 and we go to the Cantos Gordos and the Navalgueria where we see the wind farms of the Puerto de la Lancha where we already turn to the town of Navas del Marqués down near the Convent of Santo Domingo in ruins and the Castle of Magalia.

We have coincided with “101 THE BIKE RACE lookout”, that’s why the yellow marks but we do not cross paths with the runners at any time.

Fun route, with all kinds of terrains. And the best food, good beans, at the Charra Grill!
