PR-TF 71 Camino de Teresme

Technical information

Trail description

The pathway of Camino de Teresme used to be a crucial road for the locals, allowing them to travel around the area easily and exchange goods between the coast and the hills. The sawmill (El Aserradero) is proof of the significance of wood in the local economy, where the availability of water was put to good use for irrigation and other purposes in order to take full advantage of the area's wood resources. Today, the path starts by the large doorway to La Casa Fuerte, near the church of Santa Úrsula and the old Franciscan convent of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe y San Pablo, both of which have been declared Assets of Cultural Interest. The trail climbs up Boca del Paso and the ridge of Lomo de Las Lajas on a long and winding path, parts of which are paved with stone, ending at the El Aserradero crossroads. The original old path continued from El Aserradero towards the mountain tops. You can either make your journey back the way you came or take the PR-TF 71.1 trail (towards La Quinta) or the PR-TF 71.2 trail (towards Ifonche).
