Walk through the Monforte trenches

It is a beautiful walk by the surroundings of Monforte de Moyuela. We start from the main square of the village where you will see the dilapidated trinquete which you´ll leave behind to your right, then continue straight, and you will arrive to the set of three: fountain, the watering trough and the washing place, this last one has the particularity of discharging its waters to a pond used for the irrigation of orchards. Also in this area you will see a small park and a place set up as a picnic zone.

Fuente y lavadero.

Walk down the street La Fuente until you reach a fork, then turn right and continue along the way until you arrive to a hill on your right side, climb half of that hill and you will find the Val Haba trenches. If you walk along the trenches wall, you will see the different constructions made by the soldiers to be hidden and comfortable during the battle.

Walking down the ravine you should go through a small canyon, where you will enjoy the beautiful view of the canyon walls and enjoy the company of a variety of birds, specially the vultures who made of the canyon a place to rest and raise their offsprings.

Going down the stream of the river, you will reach the road that links Monforte with Huesa del Común village, just continue towards Huesa about 500 metres, then you will see the Cabezo Aparicio elevation, walk it up and finally reach the Cabezo Aparicio trenches where you can visit the wells and tunnels built on them.


Following 450 metres along the road back to the town you can get a path through the era until the “Alondrero” which is a hackberry and an emblematic tree in the village.


Keep the path until you reach Baja street where you will see the Belén chapel, then walk up till the Nuestra Señora de la Asunción church where we can conclude the walk.
