Day 2 - Discover Moclin
Walk in the local area, around 14km in length, with an opportunity to find out about the history and culture of this famous area from 360 degrees. We'll climb along a ridgeway to look across at the town, before we descend into the local gorge and follow the Rio Velillos.

Day 3 – The tour of the Atalyayas
Moclín's famous watchtowers are a central theme for today's walk of around 9km, as we keep them in view finding our way through what seems like a sea of olive groves and our final destination of Tozer, home to an important Arab cemetery and recent archaeological investigations. Dinner at village bar.
Day 4 – A tale of two castles
Setting out from the village of Mures, we'll head out on a walk of around 12km on what must have once been a well traversed route between Moclín and Alcala la Real castles.
