Fuente de la Nava Route

We leave the road towards Deleitosa and after about 2.5 km. the route begins on the path that goes off to the right of the road as indicated by the existing signage.

The path, between stone walls and dry slate, has a multitude of bushes (cistus, broom, thyme, broom, mastic …) and upon reaching the second pivot and we can see the ruins of old corrals and sheepfolds dedicated to livestock, present throughout our journey.

We advance following the signs until we reach the old lime kilns, whose lime was used in the construction works of the nearby towns. After leaving the Camino del Desecao on the right, we arrive at a bridge under which the Arroyo del Colmenar flows, named after its gorge. From here, the shady part of our route begins, which allows us to admire an abundant vegetation where magnificent poplars stand out on the right.

Leaving behind the Talaverana, Linar, and Linarejo streams, we arrive at the watering place that receives water from the Rosalejo stream.

Going up a path we leave on the left the detour that leads us to Los Respaldares and we continue until we reach La Cañada de la Nava and its fountain; which reminds us of the old transfer of livestock through this area and constitute an important crossroads that invites us to continue touring the Geopark.

Don’t forget to drink some water from this famous fountain that every May 20th hosts the Romería del Olivo en Flor.

The end of this route is the old “cañada la nava” still in use by the shepherd Emilio Mateos Ruiz. There are numerous springs that we can see flowing in this area, it is also a place of great interest for mushroom lovers. The panoramic view of this place extends from the peak of Las Villuercas to different cliffs typical of this town, such as the Cancho de La Juan Caldilla and the Sierra del Canchal.

On the other side of the Cancho de la Juan Caldilla we have the vega de los veratos crossing the stream of Garganta Los Pulios between the municipalities of Robledollano and Fresnedoso de Ibor, with impressive ravines that surround the stream, in which some pairs of imperial eagles nest, there is also an old dam called the Presa de la Herreduría. It can be accessed through the roads from Robledollano to Fresnedoso de Ibor and from Robledollano to Campillo de Deleitosa.
