Discover Moratalla - 14th April

The start of this route is a recreational area nestled at the edge of the Rambla de la Rogativa and in the way of the hermitage of the same name, also known as Camino Viejo de Zumeta. The place is worth a visit on its own, great oaks, large hackberry, a monumental Wild Cherry, plus vegetation of rocks and water. The place is framed by an area inhabited with different species of birds, and surrounded at its base by spectacular folds. From here we will climb thecenajos” by an old path that will take us out to a road by Peña Jarota beacon. After crossing a curious little pine reforestation of wild pines, we arrive at the foot of the two plateaus of Peña Jarota, and the pass that separates them, climbing first to the remains of Sabinas negrales old stone walls of the old houses. From here we will move to the summit along a road almost cut out of rock  and will allow you to master a very extensive landscape, of Moratalla,  Letur and Nerpio and an impressive watchtower often passed by flying large vultures,  inhabitants of the rock. We will return to the same place.
