The perfect combination of moors, fields, mountains, valleys and rivers turns the Cuatro Villas of Amaya into a great place to enjoy nature.

And the best way to do it is by walking through its paths. Several routes have been created to help people experience the area. The whole family can enjoy these strolls.

All the routes that we recommend are signposted and have been approved by the Mountain Association of Castile and Leon Autonomous Region.

There is a long path called GR-89 that uses the banks of the Castile Canal. While you are walking, you can discover this magnificent engineering work.

Moreover, there are some other 15 routes signposted. They are called: PRC-BU from 187 to 201.

We enclose a list with details of each path. You will find all the necessary information that will make your walk a very pleasant experience: maps of situation, directions, level of difficulty, etc.
