PR – TE 70 | GR 8.2: Dry Stone Route

This route reveals one of the most interesting heritages of this territory, the dry stone, declared of Cultural Interest (BIC). The path is taken just after crossing the gate of San Pablo in La Iglesuela del Cid and along its route you can enjoy kilometers of walls, enclosures, huts, huts … made with this ancient technique of using the stone of the land. It is worth a visit to the Sanctuary of the Virgen del Cid, to learn about the legend of El Cid’s horse next to the peiron of Santiago and to enjoy the curious “caseticas del cura” (priest’s huts).

From La Iglesuela, follow the GR 8.2 trail towards La Cuba and Casas de San Juan, passing by the Alpargateros fountain and, further on, next to the Cojico hut. At the Franch azagador you leave the GR 8.2 and take, after a few meters, a very narrow path with beautifully made stone walls. This road crosses other wider azagadores, such as the Camino del Puntal, until it reaches a large cattle landing. From here there are two options: we can go to the hermitage of El Cid or continue downhill towards the Fernandito hut, built in 1950. This option leaves us next to the beautiful stone bridge that allows us to cross the ravine. After passing by the Caseticas del Cura and the peirón next to the road, the route ends next to a commemorative hut.
