From Toledo to Los Chorros
Some 13 km from Oropesa, taking a local road, you
arrive to Puente del Arzobispo, a town with a great tradition
in ceramics, which owes its name to a remarkable 14th bridge spanning
the Tagus River, whose construction was ordered by Don Pedro Tenorio,
primate Archbishop of Toledo.
Less than 10 km southwards lies Navalmoralejo, in the vicinity of which we find the Ciudad de Vascos, a Moorish settlement that must have been abandoned around the 11th century for unknown reasons. The entire settlement can be viewed and it is considered one of the most important archaeological sites in Spain.
Continuing eastwards, past La Estrella and
Nava de Ricomalillo, take the C-401, and after covering well over
40 km across the foothills of the Montes de Toledo, take a right
turn to Los Navalucillos, in the vicinity of which lies the renowned
nature area known as Los Chorros.
