Roman road along the Iregua

Stage 2a, Alternative 2, Almarza Bridge - Pradillo - Montemediano Variant

  • 9.5 km

From where the Admuel River flows into the Iregua River, you can choose the path on the left and cross a small bridge to continue the road towards Pradillo. After crossing the bridge, pass through a gate and enter an oak wood. You will reach the Rioseco Ravine, that is crossed by a pedestrian bridge. Pass through a gate and go up through the town of Pinillos until you reach the hill of La Cañada. After crossing a pasture area, turn right towards the path that goes up into a forest until you reach a rocky area, where you will find a viewpoint with a great view of the Iregua Valley. Cross a gate that gives access to the town of Pradillo. The path becomes narrower to avoid the Peñas Malas area, which is protected with a fence. After you have passed this, the path descends slowly to Pradillo through an oak grove and, at the end, through old croplands. It ends in a magnificent 18th century bridge that crosses the Iregua River and provides the entrance to the village. Once in Pradillo, you can choose to go on the original path between Torrecilla and Montemediano, or continue to the nearby village Villanueva and go on a stretch of the Great Route Footpath La Rioja Mountains which has a Roman road between Ortigosa y Villoslada de Cameros. 2nd alternative: Pradillo Montemediano If you decide to go towards Montemediano, you have to cross the town to its highest part and exit through a metallic gate to the warehouse road. Go up the Las Calenturas Ravine until you reach a bridge. Cross it to reach a forest trail. Take the trail turning right until you reach a trail that goes from Pradillo to Montemediano. Continue on this trail. After a few metres, leave it and walk into an oak wood. After crossing a gate, the path leads to a field that slowly descends to the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Visitación of Montemediano, where it connects to the original path of the 2nd stretch that goes to El Rasillo.

Natural values

This variant (and its two alternatives) crosses an extensive forested area with Portuguese and Pyrenean oakwoods and goes across some minor limestone cliffs in Congosto de Peñamiel. This variant goes further into the land under the Natura 2000 network (Mountain ranges of Demanda, Urbión, Cebollera and Cameros), which comprises both the SPAB (Special Protection Area for Birds) and the SCI (Site of Community Importance) previously designated with the same denomination.
