Las Almunias de Rodellar

Las Almunias de Rodellar lies just south from Rodellar, one of the hot spots in the Sierra de Guara. You should find it on any map of the region. Leave the car in Almunias. Then walk the path to the Ermita de la Trinidad. After about 1.5 km you should see the mill at your right. The mill is known as the Molino del Valle de Rodellar (13). The mill took its water from the Río Alcanadre.
