August 31 – September 1
Let’s visit the waterfalls located at both sides of the border between Valencia and Aragón – Cascada del Arquero in Puertomingalvo and Río Carbo waterfall in Villahermosa del Río. We will spend the night in a rural house in the nature, next to the river – Masía Roncales.
Saturday, August 31
Cascada del Arquero
The cascade of the archer – a magical place, hidden, as if it were a treasure, presiding over the rain that causes the collision of water with a rocky ledge. The name – archer (arquero) comes from the rainbow that at certain moments can be seen between the drops of water.

Puertomingalvo is a town and municipality located in the Cultural Park of Maestrazgo northeast of the region of Gúdar-Javalambre, in the province of Teruel in Aragon, Spain. Surrounded by an incredible natural environment typical of the Serrania del Maestrazgo. It was declared a Historic-Artistic and Cultural Heritage Site in 2009 and is one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.

Accomodation – Masía Roncales
As the owners tell us:
“In the heart of Penyagolosa, in an almost virgin enclave of great beauty, Masia Roncales is a traditional construction, rehabilitated and perfectly integrated into the environment where we have created a rustic, simple and sustainable space for active tourism or simply for rest and walks, enjoying the old paths, the river, the waterfalls, the silence. All this promotes a conscious and respectful approach to nature.“
We have a double room booked plus more beds in a shared dormitory with dinner and breakfast included. This way we won’t have to worry about food, while also having the start of Sunday’s route is at our doorstep.
