We leave from the houses in Sauceda, on the path that has
a little river on the right side of the Pasada Llana. The
path is surrounded by a dense plantation of cork-trees containing
a beautiful and ecologically rich covered forest. When we arrive
at the pronounced curve to the right of the hermitage, and before
crossing the river, we hike straight foward to the hill of the Puerto
del Roble, where we find another path which we take to the right
as we pass an incredible foutain and continue ascending until we
reach a point where the path changes direction and we begin to descend
witnessing a splendid view. This is our point of attack to the Aljibe
is important that we choose a water-course so that we do not end
up on a path with very little vegetation and have to come all the
way back. We can use a coomon trick and go through the arista on
the left, following our arrival at the point of attack and through
a path with more vegetation it is easier to follow the wall to the
rocks that shows the dividing line of the water on much of the hike.
In this way we ascend first to an anterior peak, the Aljibe or the
better known, Sillita de la Reina. We then cross a thick
bushland under the peak at 1.091 m.
Sauceda pertains to the term municipal of Cortes de la Frontera
and has quaint, arid homes made of rock and wood that that are rented
out to hikers, unfurniture but perfect to throw down a sleeping
bag. From the peak of Aljibe you can continue with hikes
or other intineraries in the province of Cadiz.
