Pleasant itinerary with nice landscapes and interesting samples of heritage, as Santa María de Dulcis Sanctuary and the lovely village of Buera.

The route is suitable for families as it goes most of the time by dirt roads in good condition. The track departs from Colungo and heads softly to the Sanctuary passing by centenary olive groves. From there it goes on by a beautiful road surrounded by vineyards and, short after passing by San Juan hermitage, it arrives to Buera. Then a comfortable ascent follows, climbing up by holm oak forests, almond fields and cereal crops with amazing panoramic views of Sierra de Guara. After descending to cross a small ravine the route reaches Colungo again, where the visit to the Prehistoric Rock Art Museum is a must after the route.
