Santa Margarita

1st of May

This time we are going to the Southern edge of Teruel province – Abejuela to do a nice and pleasant hike in there which will lead us to ermita de Santa Margarita.

In the easternmost foothill of Sierra de Javalambre is Abejuela, the southernmost town in Teruel, right at the border with the provinces of Valencia and Castellón. The municipality is located next to Rambla de Abejuela, a tributary of the Turia river. The limestone mountains that surround the town have their summits flattened by erosive surfaces at heights between 1,400-1,600 m.

Juniper trees dominate this area, along with this species there are black and mixed pine forests and holm oak forests such as those in Rambla de Abejuela, to the west of the population center, and those on the Rambla de Andilla. The new population center was organized along the main street, at the foot of the hillside where the farmhouse is distributed. At one end of the town, on a ravine, a robust defense tower was erected, currently used as a home, dating back to the 13th or 14th centuries.

This short-distance trail shows us an attractive landscape view of Abejuela, offering the hiker a varied change of slopes through the different places where it passes. Easy and pleasant to walk, it is altogether a gift for the eyes since you can enjoy wide open spaces with a splendid landscape.
