24th of December
A journey into the lands of Teruel and a beautiful town of Rubielos de Mora. During this trip we will visit the town and then do a loop through Fuentes de Rubielos. Christmas-themed costumes are welcome on this hike!
Rubielos de Mora
Rubielos de Mora is located within the Gúdar-Javalambre Region, specifically it is nestled in a valley on the southern slope of the Gúdar mountain range. The Region is made up of towns with spectacular architectural ensembles, some of them called Historic-Artistic Complex, Asset of Cultural Interest or Most Beautiful Town in Spain, even as the Highest Municipality in Spain (Valdelinares, 1962 meters above sea level). In addition, all these municipalities are surrounded by a great variety of landscapes such as river gorges, quarries, reservoirs and waterfalls, among other natural places.
PR-TE 21 trail
The PRTE-21 is a circular route that runs through the religious legacy of Fuentes de Rubielos, through its two hermitages. These buildings contrast with the old trenches of the Civil War. This curious heritage deserves a pause on this route, as well as in our historical memory. We will start from the western part of the town, at the foot of the cemetery, to take a path that runs between pine forests and old labor fields. Once we arrive at the hermitage of La Magdalena, we will continue along the same path that zizags upwards and towards the east, until we reach the Col de Los Santos.
