→ 3.00 → Arroyo de la Víbora → 10.70km → El Real de la Jara
The castle overlooking El Real de la Jara makes for the perfect excuse to go for a bit of a climb, to take in the views, and to enjoy a fine sunset. It is empty inside but has been made safe for exploring.
About 1km after leaving El Real, the camino crosses a small creek which marks the entrance to the region of Extremadura. It continues to follow rural trails until El Culebrin and the adjacent 24h truck stop.
