We leave the center of town, reaching Calle Baja (Low Street) and passing in front of the Shrine of Our Lady of Mercy. We go straight to the N-II. We will continue parallel to it, keeping it on our right, on an asphalt country road. Some industrial buildings are on the left. We go straight ahead.
We always carry on straight, without taking any of the junctions that we very often come across. 3 km far from Bujaraloz, the path diverges and we take the left one, the right one goes up. Next to a farm, on our left, our way merges with another one and we turn it right. After 250 m the way diverges: we take the left one. 2 km further we come across road A-2213 and we turn it right, just for some metres as very soon we take the asphalt road starting on the left.
The asphalt becomes dirt. We go down and at the bottom of the hill we take a road to the right that goes to the village of Peñalba, which we can see now at the end of the road. We reach the village and we go down directly to the main road, which runs parallel to a canal. This is a garden area. We take the road to our left and head to another canal and the bridge that crosses it. After crossing the bridge, we turn to our right and follow the canal to the bridge carrying the N-II.
We pass underneath this bridge and continue straight on to an asphalt road that we take, without ever crossing the canal. We continue straight on and the asphalt changes to dirt. To our left is a farm and the silhouette of a black bull, up on a hill. We continue onwards on the level. We pass a lake which we leave on our right. Soon we come to an electricity pole and we take the road that goes off to our left up to the top of the hill. Electricity poles line the road.
At last we reach the top and the N-II as well. We do not cross it but take a dirt road to our right, parallel to the N-II. The yellow arrows guide us in our walk “against the current”. We reach a small bridge over the stream. We cross it and continue parallel to the N-II.
After a wooded area, we climb up to a small “picnic site,” with a fruit shop. We continue on the dirt road, always parallel to the N-II. Approaching Candasnos, we pass the red building of “Dida”, restaurant and we go to the road that will bring us to the entrance to the village. Just at the entrance we find the Hostel El Pilar.
