This route will take you to the Carvallana Salt Mines. There is a spring where, in the olden days, they used to extract sulphate of soda. On this path you can see irrigated crops in the valley, mainly maize and cereals, offering a significant contrast in colours. Amongst the fauna in the area are rabbits, hares, wood pigeons, finches, bee-eaters, etc. This is an easy route, ideal for any season of the year, and you can practice a variety of activities - hiking, cycling, horse-riding, etc.
