The route

  • Km 0. Cantos Source(All Services)

You have to street the town to cross the road of Medina de las Torres BA-069 and, front, take the trail, old Roman road, which will take us to the very entrance of Calzadilla de los Barros, six kilometers away. For more than an hour we will walk between vineyards through the local sites of La Cigüeña, Viña Sola and La Ensancha. We will leave the region of Tentudía to enter the region of Zafra-Río Bodión.

Once in Calzadilla de los Barros (see section remarks) we are guided by the yellow arrows which, unfortunately, do not lead to the church of the Savior. It is worth visiting, especially to see its largest Gothic/Mudéjar exhibition, declared National Historical Artistic Monument. As a curiosity, a detail of this altarpiece appeared in the Christmas tenths of 2012.

  • Km 6. Calzadilla de los Barros (Municipal Hostel). Hostel. Bars. Shops. Cashier. Pharmacy. Office)

Taking Zafra Street we leave the population, we continue the march towards Puebla de Sancho Pérez saving, depending on the time, various channels such as the Molinillo and the Romo. The itinerary approaches the N-630 and the Rivera Atarja River, which we cross. If you cannot cross, you will have to continue along the N-630 and take some of the tracks leading to La Puebla de Sancho Pérez (Km 9.2). After the course, at 200 meters, we must turn 90° to the left and move north-west along the so-called Silver Path.

During the next nine kilometers, without change of direction, several pistes and some more water courses, such as the stream of Las Cañadas and that of Matasanos, will be interposed in our pilgrimage. They are plain lands of vines and olive trees and also habitat of cinegetic species such as partridge, hare and rabbit. We will enter Puebla de Sancho Pérez after crossing the train tracks (Km 18.5) and the road that goes down to Medina de las Torres.

  • Km 20.3. La Puebla de Sancho Pérez(Hostal. Bars. Shops. Cashier. Pharmacy. Office)

People cross from south to north and leave again crossing BA-160 and a bridge over the roads. The Zafra train station is already a stone's throw away and once there (Km 22,6) we will take as a reference an abandoned building, seen brick, reminiscent of the mudéjar constructions. You have to go by its main facade - with the inscription ZH 1917 - and reach a door, which we open to enter Zafra through the endless Avenida de la Estación. Number 17 is the hostel of the Association of Friends of the Path of Zafra. At the end of this avenue to the left diagonal we will enter the plaza of Spain.
