Route along rural road
Duration: From 3 to 4 hours.
Distance: Approx. 12,5 km.
On leaving the Oficina de Turismo situated on the Av. de la Libertad take the Sta. Teresa street situated on the left situated on the left of the Town Hall and, just under 1 km, turn right onto a dirt road opposite a sign showing "Club Hípica".
Continue down this road until you reach a left turn on the edge of a plot of land bordered by a white wood fence and follow this road.
Carry on down this road some 4 km, until you reach the "Mayeto", a typical farmhouse used by Farmers of Rota.
One of the most notable features of the Mayeto is the roof made from local vegetation, which keeps it cool in summer and warm in winter. (I would miss this sentence out unless you can say whether its plants or the buildings - I'm not sure which). Here we can see three old farmhouses surrounded by a fence framed by prickly pears. Walk around the farmhouse, taking the parallel road, until you find an exit and then right heading towards the bridge. As you cross the bridge, take the road going towards the EDAR (waste water treatment factory).
Carry straight on until you reach a crowwroads and the continue straight on. Throughout the route you will see typical regional plant life such as vines, sunflowers, tomatoes, pumpkins, etc., depending, of course, on the time of year that you take the route.
On arriving at some greenhouses surrounded by eucalyptus, pass these and take the fork to the right. On passing another Mayeto farmhouse, turn right along a vine field, and you should arrive at a crossing at which you turn right. Looking back, there should be a bridge to your left.
Continue straight on until you get to some electric pylons and a greenhouse on the left and then turn right until you get to another two pylons the carry on to the left. Go around some eucalyptus on the left and carry straight on until you arrive at the waste water treatment plan. Turn right here. Carry straight on until you reach a "stop" sign and then carry straight on past the cypress trees, travelling parallel to the main road, until you reach the end of the road. On the left you will see the bridge that takes you back to Rota.
Once you are on the bridge, continue in the direction of Rota until you arrive at the sign that says "Rota 7 km". Take the road on the left to arrive on the same road you left on.
