Jimena de la Frontera, Castle and River Tour

Next Date: Tuesday, 28th January 2020

Beautiful walk from the Moorish castle above the village, with stunning views over the Cork Forest, down to the Hozcarganta river

Our route takes us from the centrer of charming village through pretty streets full of flowers up to the old Moorish castle, perched above the town. Jimena is called "de la Frontera", meaning "the border", like many villages that were located on the border between the Moorish and the Christian Empire. 
Río Hozcarganta

We continue our walk to a viewpoint overlooking the Cork Forest and from there find our way down to the river.

The Hozcarganta river has engraved its riverbed between bizarre rock formations and lush the vegetation of the Cork Forest Nature Reserve. We follow the river on a very pretty path and when we come back to the village, we can enjoy some tapas in a typical Tasca on the main square.
