Legend: From Sanguino

The Christians who were unable to conquer the villa due to the great resistance of the moors, went to the Los Alcornocales bills and there they captured he-goats and tied torches to their borns, taking these goats to the foot of the castle where they lit the torches. The goats frightened by the fire on theirn borns, ran madly up the cliff and entered the castle at night burning everything they found on their way. The dwellers fled terrified to the other side of the castle, where they jumpend off an impressive gorge into a stream denominated “Sanguino”. The legend says that there was so much blood spilt into the waters of the Sanguino, that its course turned red.

    The paleolithic rock paintings, the megalithic dolmenes, the medieval castillos, all these are not the property of elite archaeologists, rather, these are the common cultural heritage of the people. Care for it well, my friends!

    No escoger un día que sea demasiado caluroso pero que tampoco sea muy frio ya que si corre viento no hay quien lo soporte. La subida no es acta para cualquier persona, pero cuando se llega a la entrada en recodo y se gira te das cuenta que a merecido la pena. Por otra parte, estaría bien que lo cuidaran un poco mas. Nuestro pasado y patrimonio no nos pertenece pero estamos obligados a preservarlo para las generaciones venideras.
