Route description

This signposted hiking trail, 13 kilometres in length, links the villages ofBuera, Salas Altas, Salas Bajas, Pozán de Vero and Castillazuelo.All of the villages have interesting chapels located near the village centre. Regardless of their small size, their artistic quality and historic value, these temples are an authentic spiritual epicentre for the local residents.  The festive and religious calendar revolve around these chapels.

One can set off on the route from any of the five villages, with itinerary information boards in all the towns. These include: general information about the path, recommendations, details of each respective chapel, how to find the key for the chapels and maps etc.

New interpretive panels have been installed in El Plano and San Fabián chapels (Dulcis, La Candelera and San Macario to follow). The entireitinerary is marked at crossings and reminder points in the form of posted signs and arrows in areas where there may be some doubt. Also wooden hand rails in potentially dangerous areas(uneven surfaces, ponds or lakes and steep slopes).

Apart from the not to be missed chapels and the Sanctuary of Dulcis, the way is dotted with an array of interesting sights,such as churches, traditional Somontano village houses , vineyards of D.O. Somontano and century old olive trees…
