DRY STONE WALLS
At this point on the route, you are alongside a series of dry-stone walls which demarcate the old terraces or plots dedicated to crops. These dry-stone walls scarp the slopes, forming terraces and creating land that can be cultivated. These structures also slow loss of rainwater, as well as retaining humidity and preventing erosion.
During the Spanish Civil War, many people trusted in these lands to help them survive. Some even tried to turn these terraces into market gardens, with the help of irrigation elements such as cisterns for storing water.
