View of two rivers
A marked trail takes you on a 3-kilometer hike to the Viewpoint of La Carrasquera, one of the most beautiful points within the Tajo International Natural park. Its elevation lets you see both the Pónsul and Tajo rivers.
The area surrounding the viewpoint features a flawless “V” shape of the rivers whose waters range from emerald green to deep, intense blue and silver-grey. The viewpoint also has a picnic area where you can get something to eat and, if you’re lucky, they’ll treat you to a regional fish stew, as happened in our case.
I’d suggest getting there on foot since the path from Cedillo is well-marked and well-beaten and it passes by interesting archaeological sites like the Pila de Los Ladrones, an anthropomorphic tomb dating back to the 9th century. It’s a wonderful place to enjoy yourself while looking out over the Tajo and Pónsul, to relax and disconnect from the world, and to enjoy the silence of the Extremeño wilderness.
