Sanctuary of la Carrodilla and Ice well
From more than twenty years, inthe spring there has been a popular mountain bike race up to the Sanctuary of La Carrodilla.
If you enjoy cycling and you would like to discover charming places, set off pedaling on this circular path. Because of its sign postings you can choose either the Calasanz path (through Mentirosa) or on the Alins path (La Carrodilla) to climb or descend.
And when you arrive at the end, get off your bike and visit the rich and diverse heritage of Estadilla. You´ll want to come back!
Alongside the Sanctuary of La Carrodilla, one can find the Chelo Well (Pozo del Chelo) in which snow was stored during the winter. It is made ofstone and lime mortar with a cylindrical floor. The structure is covered with a dome where there is a gap for filling with snow.
The monumental character of this well, a maximum of 9 metres high, demonstrates the skills and mastery of the stonemasons from the region.
This route can also be hiked in a day.
