The Green Track (Vía Verde) of Lucainena de las Torres
The Vía Verde seeks to relive the mining past of the area, redeveloping the route of the old railway to convert it into a place of recreation and leisure, where you can walk and enjoy the beautiful scenery. It begins in Lucainena de las Torres, from the old building of the mining company (now a college) and ends at the bridge Saltador in Rambla Honda. The Vía Verde has length of 5.5 km and is suitable for walkers, cyclists including people with reduced mobility. There is the possibility of extending the path by the road of La Rambla Honda to Polopos - 7km more.
SL A 62 - mining path
The route has a length of 6.3 km. It starts next to the Green Track (although you can leave from the Town Hall square) and passes through the old mines and calcination ovens. 8 big ovens make us realise how important the mining activity was in this area at the end of the 19th Century. Passing the ovens the route continues through the town centre, next to a laundry and waterhole, still in use, and leads to Lavadero de Marchal. It than continues trough the area of the "Huerta" where you can see, between some farmhouses, centuries old carob trees, and ends again in the Green Track.
PR A 331 - Los Marchales
The route is about 13km. The first stretch of the path traverses the Green Track completely, the second goes through Rambla Honda and Rambla de los Morales and rises toward Paraje de los Morales. During the whole climb you can enjoy the views towards Peñón of Lucainena to one side and Paraje de Marchal and Vega Lucainena de las Torres to the other. The route ends with a stroll through the streets of Lucainena de las Torres.
