We leave this beautiful town from the door of the church of San Juan. We take Cuesta de Barbacana (Barbican Hill Street) and head towards the cemetery. We leave the cemetery on our right and we go to the hotel – Cosme Palacio wine cellar. Follow the road, leaving Cosme Palacio on our left and 100 m from the hotel we find an asphalt road which we take to our left, at right angles. We will follow this path for the next 3.6 km without taking any deviation either to right or left.
After two curves in succession, one right and one left, we arrive at an old sandpit. We see that the paved road goes to the A-3216. We leave the road here and take a fork to our right to continue parallel to the A-3216 road. We go straight on our road which is wide and well defined. When we reach another fork, we take the right (if we went left, we would reach the A-3216 and the town. It is better to take a right and avoid that section of the highway).
We carry straight on our way, which is wide and well defined, until we reach Lapuebla de Labarca. We go through the village until we reach the church, which is near the river Ebro. We go down the road beside the river, because we are going to cross over the bridge towards the industrial area of El Romeral.
After the bridge, we continue straight on the road named “from Velilla to the train station of Fuenmayor”, (LR-251). We pass under the train tracks. Straight ahead, we have no loss. We reach Fuenmayor still walking on the same paved road We arrive at the main square and the church of Santa Maria.
We cross the town and find National Road-232 where it meets the road to Navarrete. Go straight and after crossing the N-232 road, we take it on our left and we try to find a dirt road close to us (it starts 130 m from this point) that runs parallel to the Navarrete road, but avoids the traffic. We recognize it because it is beside a waterway. We take it turning to our right and we follow it always straight ahead.
We are walking along beside the water canal on our left. We reach the end: in front of us the AP-68 highway forces us to turn to our right, to reach the asphalt road to Navarrete. We pass under the bridge. 250 m after the bridge, we take a dirt road on the left that takes us close to the toll booths of the highway. We pass the barriers on our left and we continue straight on the dirt road.
We pass a water canal and at a fork keep to our right. We continue straight ahead and go under a bridge, which carries the A-12 overhead. Passing under it we walk on, getting closer to Navarrete. Finally we reach this town, so closely linked to the experience of Ignatius.
