Senija Circuit

An attractive and pleasant walk through the quiet streets of Senija and up an old mule path to the cross on the summit of Les Basetes from where there are excellent all round views. Later along a spur with a strange rock spine. The motorway is visible far below to the East and just over the spine there are views of the Jalon valley and beyond to the West The path ends at a wall before a precipice and from here there is an optional semi scramble to visit a cave with a rather grisly legend. Your walk returns to the road and on down to Senija with bar/restaurant "Senitja" on the L, just before your cars. Here the amusing elderly lady owner may tell the story of the cave. She also serves enormous helpings of liver!

  1. This walk is now well marked with the white and yellow paint marks.

    When you reach the "road" following the descent from the cross the marked path actually continues straight on!! There are no obvious marks right on the verge but a little exploration will find a small cairn and then the yellow and white marks.

    This will take you more directly to the "wall" (from where you can scamble down the cave and back if you wish) and then follow the more or less level path back to the road.

    For refreshments in Senija I can also recommend Taverna Llorenc Botero on the right just as you enter "The Square".
