A circular walk to the Torre del Paso and the Casa de Piedra via Cañada del real Tesoro (Estacion de la Frontera) and Cortes de la Frontera.
We start at Finca del Rio, and walk down the track and under the bridge towards the right, and into Estacion de la Frontera.
Taking a left into the center of Estacion de la Frontera we continue passed the church on our right, and down towards the river Guadiaro on our left.
When we come to the bridge on our left, take the track (vía) up towards the railway line to the right.
Cross the railway tracks.
Take the path passed some farm houses on you’re right. Go through the gate which is held together with lots of Spanish string (es muy fuerte!). Remember to tie up the gate afterwards. Then follow the track upwards.
The path narrows as you climb through undergrowth, until you come to this tree.
Follow the path up near the fenceline.
Walk up the track towards the Torre del Paso. As you climb up, the path will widen to the left, then right until you come to a gate. Go through the gate remembering to fasten it behind you.
The Torre del Paso.
You can climb into the Torre. But be careful, the stones at the bottom can move a little.
