The route

Km 0. Guillena (All services)

We leave the refuge and, on the right hand, we move along the avenue of la Vega. Four hundred meters away we turn right to cross the Rivera River of Huelva, which at this point has a stagnant and rather deteriorated flow. The arrows guide us by some farms until we go to the A-460. We cross it to the industrial estate and, through the streets Biprasa and Carpinteria, enter the Canada Real de las Islas Pecuaria (Km 3).

At the beginning of it we will soon be aware of the close presence of an aerodrome and ultralight school. Seeing them overflying the olive grove is inevitable to remember the scene of Cary Grant chased by a plane in With the death on the heels of Alfred Hitchcock. For an hour we will slowly ascend between olive groves and fruit tree stains until reaching the first portilla of the Vía de la Plata (Km 7) .

The olive grove gives way to the Mediterranean forest, populated by holm oaks, jaras and chaparros. The Sierra Norte de Sevilla begins and the itinerary of the stage coincides here with that of the Cortijo del Chaparral to Castilblanco de los Arroyos. It is worth taking this purifier stretch of almost seven kilometers calmly. The road is abandoned to the height of a modern miliary with the inscription Camino de Santiago – Vía de la Plata, one of the miliarians distributed in the section of the province of Seville and placed by the Diputación in 2000 (Km 13,5).

You have to cross road A-8002 and, to the left, move more than two kilometres glued to it by a very narrow space that survives covered with grass. We reached the urbanizations La Colina and San Benito Abad, left and right of the road (Km 15,7). We enter the latter, giving a rodeo to avoid more asphalt, and we return to the road to enter Castilblanco. To go to the hostel you do not need to enter the urban area and do continue a few hundred meters to the petrol station to collect the keys.
