Nordic Walking Trail: Los Covachos

46
6

This walk through the surroundings of Almadén de la Plata passes through areas of grassland, olive groves, dehesa and riverbanks, running alongside the Las Calzadillas stream.

The trail heads towards the Cueva de los Covachos cave, skirting the hill of the same name. In the two entrances to the cave there are curious quarries of coloured marble, which have been worked since the 1st century AD. Because of the cave paintings, inscriptions and archaeological remains discovered (slabs, pickaxes, wedges and items of architectural use), it has been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest.

Although there is a shorter version of the walk, you are recommended to follow this route in order to avoid the road as much as possible. To find the beginning of the path from the village, go from the Clock Tower to the school, following the GR-48 signs for the first few metres only. After passing the school and turning left at the wastewater treatment plant, continue parallel to the Las Calzadillas stream along its left bank until you pass the cemetery and come to the road.

After following the road for about 400 m, on the left, a path leaves the road at right angles, leading to the cave through a landscape of abandoned quarries. After visiting the cave, continue walking until you reach the Camino de Santiago, where you turn left to return to the village.

Circular walk. Begins at the Clock Tower, near the Town Hall Square. It is not fully signposted, but the path is clearly defined.
