VP03 - Castilblanco de los Arroyos - Almadén de la Plata - 29,5 km

 

Itinerary

You will take about 7 or 8 hours to walk this stage of almost 30 km. We advise to start with enough water and food for the route, as there are no shops or facilities along this stretch.

You will leave Castilblanco via Almadén road and will walk 16 km on it until you get to the entrance to El Berrocal Forest Park. Here, the pilgrim will have to choice of keeping on the road or go across the park. We recommend the second option, as it is more interesting and nicer, but make sure the park is not closed.

2 km ahead you will find La Morilla (a forest house), where the forest ranger’s house is located; this is a place where you might be able to get some water. Continue on a paved path for some km and when you get to a milestone, you will have to turn left; after crossing a small bridge, leaving to the left some abandon houses, you will get out of the ranch through a gate and then cross another one later on.

At this point on the way, you will start ascending towards Alto del Calvario. The descent to Almadén is short but quite pronounced.

 

Almadén de la Plata

Altitude: 448 m

Distance from El Real de la Jara: 16,6 km

Even though the origins of the town are very ancient, the most interesting remains are from Roman and Arab times. During the Arab occupation it was called Al-Madin, which means mine. Mining activity has marked its local history, as well as its economy; also, many popular buildings where used to accommodate the miners.

 

What can you visit?

The Old Town Hall (Clock Tower), the Town Hall, Santa María de Gracia Church and “La Traviesa” Necropolis and Bronze Museum.
