From Laja Alta to Humosa Cave

In the middle of Los Alcornocales stands defiant, on the top of a steep cliff, the cave of Laja Alta. Inside we will find a complete catalog of fishing techniques and ships from natives that have been drawn in the 7th century a. C. We are standing before one of the most important collection of paintings of the Iberian Peninsula.

We shall depart from the hotel establishment or agreed meeting point to head towards the entrance of the Jateadero estate. There we will leave the vehicle and we shall take a walk under the shade of gall-oak trees until we reach the steep cliff where we will find the cave of Laja Alta. We shall enjoy the sights that this site has to offer and its interesting cave arts. After heading back to the 4x4 we shall take a lunch break in a local restaurant, to later head towards the Camara Hillsides. The ascending journey offers us a breathtaking landscape and shall end in the highest point of the area. Nearby we shall find Cueva Humosa, which is exceptional as it is the only cave of its kind that has antropomorphic tombs.

From here we shall return to the hotel establishment or meeting point where we shall bid farewell!
