Senda por los robles centenarios
An immense walnut tree - listed as a singular tree- marks the alley from where this path begins. Between cherry orchards, plums and apple trees, you can see the riverbank vegetation of trembling (Populus tremula) and willows (Salix atrocinerea) of the Cuesta creek next to which you walk. If you want to see the natural spring you have to separate yourself from the route.
In the area called “Behind the Rock” you can see rocky outcrops of quartzite, where the huge oaks once used for coal production are located.
Halfway you reach the Cerradillo pond, that accumulates water in winter so that we can water the meadows, orchards and flax trees in the summer season. From this point you walk by the reguera between oak trees (Quercus pyrenaica), jara pringosa (Cistus ladanifer) and heather (Erica australis), setting aside the ancient linrs where flax was grown, first plant fiber that had acceptance in the textile industry. This plant of the genus Linum is native to the Nile valleys, Tigris and Euphrates.
End the trail by enjoying a magnificent panorama of the peaks surrounding Puebla de la Sierra, from “Peña La Cabra” up to “The Porrejón”, before arriving at the village laundry.
