LAS FUENTES ROUTE

This is a journey where the olive groves, vineyards and other typical plantations demonstrate the rich agriculture of this land. Crossing these places, you will come across different springs which all have a historical-cultural tradition in the town, such as the Tejera Spring, the María Spring and the Spring in the Paraje de Valviejo, an ideal place for relaxation and regaining your strength in the picnic area. The most common fauna here are rabbits, hares, partridges, pigeons and bee-eaters.
ITINERARY: Take the road to Morata and on your right you will see the path where the route begins. On the Vadelalosa path, at the first cross-roads, continue on the left; cross over the Cañada Valvieja stream to take the right-hand turn at the next crossing. After 500 metres you will see the Cerro del Hospital on your right and a little further on, continuing on the right, the Fuente de la Tejera. At the spring there are paths on the four sides. You continue along the central path and, after 100 metres, turn to the right which leads to the Fuente María. 500 metres on there are two paths on both sides. Continue along the middle one for almost one km. up to the next crossing. This is where the return journey starts, on the left-hand path. On reaching the Fuente María stream the route continues on the left. Amidst olive trees and isolated vines, for one km. keep straight on, until you come to the Colmenar railway line, now no longer used. Keep on your right up to the Paraje de Valviejo which leads to the Morata M-315 road and to the town.
