The walk starts from the N-321 and is relatively flat as it winds through the olive groves, Holm oak woods and old farmhouses, as in the small hamlet of “Cruz de San Sebastián”. Without leaving the main path it meets up with the “Realenga” or “Via Pecuaria” Loja-Priego, droves or paths used for transporting livestock between Loja and Priego, where you can enjoy extensive views of the landscape around the “Montes de Granada” and the “Sierras Subbéticas”, owing to the high altitude of this part of the route.
The route begins at the junction with the cattle drove of Loja in the area of “Chite” (Route of the shepherd). This path heads left towards “La Zarzuela”, which descends in the direction of “La Viña”. After about 500m you will encounter the first crossing, here you turn right heading for “La Solana”, passing by traditional cortijos (farmhouses) nestled amongst olive groves and small woods of Holm oak.
The walk begins from the crossroads at “Cordel de la Viña”, at the animal path through the hamlet of La Viña, where you will find one of the best-preserved collections of architecture in Algarinejo. After passing a series of buildings, on the right, the walk continues on to the “Barriada del Castillo”, the original part of this village and the main attraction of the route.
