Walk through a classic limestone landscape dotted with 'cortijos' - traditional farmhouse complexes found across the countryside. Lovely woods of evergreen oaks and typical Mediterranean vegetation on your way to Benaocaz - an untouched 'Pueblo Blanco' with historic remains dating back to Roman times. The village sits perched on a hill, with sweeping views all around. If you chose walking to Villaluenga del Rosario via the Campobuche River valley, this route is longer but the walking is easier and the terrain more suitable in foggy weather.
