This was the scariest thing I have ever done. The air smells like the north side of a south bound donkey. Water is brown and murky. I do not suggest this!!!

Very nice walk, longer than expected

Nice walk, clean air, quite a few things to see. It is a two hours walk there plus two hours back, so be prepared for some exercise.

Much more than a waterfall
Oct 2015 • Solo
You may start thinking your walk is about natural scenery, beautiful views and a waterfall for dessert, but you end up realising that is much more than that.
To start with there is the Paular Monastery part of the medieval Spanish Heritage which is worth the guided visit if you have the time. Impressive Barroco style but also you may learn about the life in a Benedictine monastery.
Then you cross the river walking the Puente del Perdón, not just a civil bridge. It has a legend about the convicted men who crosses it were forgiven from the charges in a summary quick trial, otherwise (plan B) is being handed.
Now you start walking near by Las Presillas, a recreational area with "natural" swimming pools for the people to enjoy i summer.
You may be able to appreciate the economy of the area, mainly based on livestock farming and wood.
Then you will walk throughout an oak forest, in the past people made charcoal with this resource. Specially interesting in autumn.
And yes, at last you find yourself in front of a waterfall in a narrow granitic gorge produced by the enormous pressure due to seismic pressures.
If you are fit enough and use to climb you may see the second fall a few meters up.
Enjoy it!
