Walking Camino De Iznajar
I love a nice long walk. So when I found that the house we were staying at in Spain was right on the camino de Iznajar, I was thrilled! I started walking the trail into Iznajar once a day, I couldn’t resist! It was such a serene, beautiful, and amazing place to walk!
The trail was lined with olive groves that wove all the way up the hills, you could often see men up on the hills harvesting the olives. They harvested the olives by laying down tarps around the tree they were working on. Then they either used a tree shaking machine, or manually used big sticks to hit the limbs of the tree and make the olives fall.
There were also several different creeks that ran through the trail. Some lined with big fluffy river plants. Others were small and muddy with big fat frogs that would jump when you walked by with a big plop.
There were beautiful wild flowers all along the walk, and I couldn’t resist taking pictures.
Villa Nueva De Tapia
Once you get into Villa Nueva de Tapia just look around! It is a lovely little town with friendly people and a charming sleepy-village-feel to it. After your time in Villa Nueva de Tapia the walk back down the trail seems like nothing! It is easier and goes by faster than you would expect. I didn’t end up walking the other direction towards Iznajar, however I certainly loved my time in Villa Nueva De Tapia!
I love this walk so much, it is just so quiet and peaceful. If you are in the area, I suggest just taking an afternoon to leisurely walk this trail. You will really enjoy your time, and have a wonderful time with many fantastic pictures.
