Hello dear members!

In this activity we will make a trekking along the route of the mills, in the city of Alcalá de Guadaira. Our dear friend Jesún has offered himself to guide us around and explain us the most interesting anecdotes.

The departure point will be the Hotel Oromana. From here we will go to the playground. Next to it is the path of descent to the river, where we take the first entrance on the right down some stairs.

Our first stop will be the Benarosa Mill located on the right bank of the river. Further on and on the same shore is the Mill of San Juan.

Returning to the left bank we will arrive at the Oromana Mill, next to a natural source, now converted into a viewpoint.

Continuing forward along the left bank of the river and leaving behind the footbridge, we access the Algarrobo Mill, from which we can see, right in front of us, the remains of La Caja Mill.

The road divides in two, one that goes up and another that continues towards the front. If we go up we arrive to the Hermitage of San Roque.

We retrace our steps and continue straight ahead accessing the La Tapada Mill entering the area called El Bosque. If we continue advancing we will arrive at the Charles III Bridge.

If we cross it and turn right we will find the San Francisco Park, where we can enjoy a place to rest and find bars to finish our route.

After lunch, we will make a stop in our way back to see el Puente del Dragón and take some pictures.

► STIMATED DURATION: 2 hours (plus lunch time). If you wish to return earlier, please arrange transportation with the driver in advance.
► PARTICIPANTS: no limit (only according to the number of seats available in the cars)
► TRANSPORTATION: It would be great if we can all fit into cars. Passengers will have to pay 1 € to the driver for gas expenses. Those who would like to share their car, please just post a comment on the group wall so people can contact you and arrange to meet where best suits you.
If there is not enough cars available some of you may share a taxi or uber to the location (use the wall to talk).
(Bus connection is really bad, there are no stops near the meeting point)
► MEETING POINT: 12:00 P.M. at the main entrance of the Hotel Legado Oromana (Alcalá de Guadaira).
The drivers will set up the meeting place and the time to pick up the passengers.

If you have any other question feel free to write it on the group wall or directly to me with a private message.
