We followed this road for slightly less than a kilometre and then it turns sharply to the left and you are faced with a very steep climb of more than 35% which takes you 100 metres higher to a track that leads you to Roda de Isabena, prominently situated on top of a hill.
The views during this walk are beautiful and there is a great variety in scenery. Unfortunately this part of the walk also passes some pig farms with their characteristic pungent smell that not everybody likes. The view of Roda de Isabena makes up for this though.
After passing the farms you reach the road to Roda de Isabena that you follw to get to the old city with its majestic cathedral from the eleventh century, San Vincente Martir. It is worth your while to wander slowly through the old streets and alleys around the cathedral which will also give you a good view of the surrounding countryside.
We found a beautiful quiet spot, just outside the city, next to a small, very old church to picnic and overlook the valley of the Isabena. You will look down on the other side of the river that you will follow back to La Puebla de Roda.
The descent to the A-1605 is a beautiful one and you can see the signs that once upon a time this must have been an important track to Roda.
Reaching the A-1605 the path turns to the left and shorly afterwards to the right to an impressive Roman bridge across the Isabena. A beautiful spot indeed. Having crossed the bridge the path rises 20 to 30 metres and you will really have a beautiful view of this meandering river and the surroundings and you will see El Turbón rising in front of you.
Reaching La Puebla de Roda we also took the time to go up to this little village and breathe in its quietude.
