Activity description
Activity description:
You cannot miss this hiking activity through Santa María del Tiétar, a place full of magic and history!
Santa Maria del Tiétar
Santa María del Tiétar, previously called Escarabajosa, is a Spanish town and municipality, belonging to the province of Ávila, autonomous community of Castilla y León. We highlight as monuments of interest the Parish Temple and the Zahurdas de la Cancha.
The Parish temple is located in the center of the town and is limited to the North by the town square, and to the South by a small courtyard, an old cemetery. The Zahúrdas de La Cancha complex is made up of two almost perpendicular constructions. You can admire the roof covering that is made with large cushioned rocks, and the walls, which are built with abundant local granite, which are up to one meter thick. It is a traditional architecture with a strong megalithic flavor.
Trekking
Hiking is a tourist activity as well as a sport that allows you to enjoy nature in a group, while burning calories. Thanks to this activity you will get out of the stress of the big city and enjoy the advantages of exercising outdoors. It is a sporting but not competitive activity that can be practiced by everyone, simple, without risks, adapting to the health status of each person.
Activity
You have the opportunity to discover the surroundings of the town of Santa María del Tiétar by taking an archaeological route through rural areas. This activity consists of a walk of about 10 kilometers with 250 meters of unevenness, with sections in which you walk across the field. You will be able to enjoy a pleasant and bearable route, you will pass through the stream of the Arroyo Pajarero, where you will be able to admire and photograph the reservoir and the mills of yesteryear, and the wonderful Casillas chestnut grove. You will not miss the walk through the zahúrdas, and through the Colinar Lake and the old dam.
‘Try this enriching archaeological route and also enjoy other landscapes full of life and a charm apart! Do not miss it!
