Profile of the itinerary

Description of the route

The route starts from Serradilla to reach the Friar’s Gorge, the most outstanding part of the itinerary. The first kilometres run along the foot of the Sierra de la Cueva and Peñafalcón to return to the starting point on a trail crossing the dehesa which affords spectacular views of La Portilla and the sierras of Monfragüe National Park.

It is an easy route on trails in good condition although there are some differences in height with steep slopes in the vicinity of the Friar’s Gorge. From then on the countryside is flat on the return through the dehesas to Serradilla.

The route runs between smallholdings of olive trees to the vicinity of the gorge, where Mediterranean woodland and scrub become more evident with holm oaks, cork oaks, terebinths, wild olive trees, rockroses… which give way to riverside vegetation of willows, ferns, laurustinus, etc. The most spectacular aspect of the route is the noteworthy colony of griffon vultures and other birds of prey which inhabit the steep rocky sides of Peñafalcón.
