We will then drive through the village and over the roman bridge, park and boot up. We follow the river for a short while along a broad track. The first part of the walk climbs gradually through the almond groves and open ploughed fields until we reach the ruins of El Castillo de Turon rising on the left side. We continue to climb, there are some parts which are quite steep so require a bit more effort but the views to the Sierra de Ronda are certainly worth it. On reaching the highest point the scenery changes completely and we enter the pine forests. From now on the track winds its way down through the trees until we reach open farmland again. We follow the track back to the river and cars. Climb 300m
