Espolón de la Virgen Via Ferrata (Rodellar-Mascún)


Among the many attractions in the village of Rodellar area of Sierra de Guara is the possibility of climbing by way of via ferrata. There is a magnificent atmosphere, outstanding scenery and fantastic views over the Mascún ravine and the Cuca Bellostas and Ciudadela crags.
At the end of the climb you find the chapel devoted to the Virgen del Castillo, which is reached by the signposted path back. This path allows people who do not want to try the via ferrata to reach the top and meet the ones who do.
