SENDA MIRADOR DEL CÍJARA
We will start the route taking the road towards Helechosa. Around 500 m of it, we find, on the right slope of the road, the sign of the start of the trail. We will take this path in the opposite direction of the road, ascending until it is at the height of the Cíjara dam. After several zig-zags, we will reach an area where several trenches of Civil War stones are located, as well as a tower, also made of stones. This is the point with the best views of the Sierra de Guadalupe and the dammed Guadiana. The descent follows the same route, in reverse.
