We start from the centre of Alagón, going down the Calle Chacón, in the direction of the Calle de la Estación, because we’re going toward a bridge which crosses the train line outside of town. Going straight ahead, the road takes us over a second bridge, this one crossing AP-68 highway.
Right after crossing the highway, we turn right onto a road which is at first paved and then becomes a dirt road. This road runs parallel to the highway, which accompanies us on our right for a good stretch. We will reach a bridge over the highway. We don’t cross that bridge, but it serves as a point of reference for a roadway to our left, which we take. This road cuts away from the highway at a right angle.
The dirt road now gives way to the asphalt that marks our path. We keep straight on and we come across Jalón River on our right. We come close to Jalón River following it along its left. We cross the river and after that the path takes us further from it, in a sharp bend to the right. We always keep straight on the asphalt road till we arrive in Torres de Berrellén.
We enter the town on the Calle de Garfilán and we head to the City Hall. We visit the church in Aragon Street and finally we leave town by way of Calle Cervantes and Camino de Sobradiel. We will find ourselves in open fields. About 600 meters further on we cross an irrigation canal and keep going straight. Many of the present-day canals date from the Muslim period. Two kilometres further on we reach a point where the road divides in two in order to allow a canal to flow down the middle of it. We take the roadway to the left, so that the canal is to our right, and we walk parallel to the canal until we reach the small town of Sobradiel.
We look for the church, which is in the park, and we continue ahead passing the church to our left. The Calle del Pino takes us toward the exit from town. We continue straight on the paved road, which after 1.6 kilometres turns 90 degrees to the right and leaves us at a bridge which again crosses AP-68 highway. We cross the highway and find ourselves at a roundabout. We take the second exit, which sends us toward the industrial area. After about 100 meters, we take a paved road (which is later unpaved), which runs alongside the wall of the last company. The train station of Casetas is on our right. About 200 meters ahead we find the Magrisa factory, which we keep on our right. After about two kilometres, this road will take us to Utebo, without crossing the train tracks again and without actually entering into the town of Casetas. We see the town of Utebo in the distance and we head towards its church.
We turn 90 degrees to the left on Calle de Joaquín Costa, which soon becomes Calle Miguel Hernández. We head toward the centre of town. After passing the plaza and a garden, we turn to our right, entering onto Calle Antonio Machado. This takes us out of town, and after a kilometre it crosses a bridge over the highway.
After crossing the bridge, we walk straight ahead, parallel to an irrigation canal on our right. We cross the canal a little further on and continue to follow it, but now it’s on our left. The road “jumps” from one canal to another one, which now is on our right. We follow it just 100 meters and continue straight along our route until we come out on a street from which we can already see the next town: Monzalbarba. Turning to our left, we enter the town by the Calle de Nuestra Señora la Sagrada (an old Roman road), and we walk straight through.
Just as we leave town by the Camino de Monzalbarba, we find the small church of Nuestra Señora la Sagrada. The road turns 90 degrees to the right, but we continue straight ahead on the paved road. We are in the path of La Almozara. We walk always straight on for a few kilometres. We leave a road on our right which leads to a bridge over the highway. We continue straight on our road until we find another bridge over which we cross the highway. After crossing the bridge, we pass through a tunnel, and then cross the last bridge – all of which saves us going through the highway intersection and announces our arrival in Zaragoza. We continue on straight until we reach the bank of the Ebro River. We make a 90 degree turn to our right, and we walk along the riverside path.
We continue on the road, which keeps following the river, which is to our left. In case it is not obvious: what we have before us is what once was ExpoZaragoza-2008, a large international exposition on the topic of water. We enter Zaragoza, where all the roads are fine, as long as we stay near the Ebro River. Located on the river (which we keep always on our left) are the old centre of town and the Plaza del Pilar, which we find after crossing the Puente de Santiago and before reaching the Puente de Piedra.
