We did our normal Wednesday walk on Friday this week as it was forecast rain on Wednesday. It looked like rain again first thing but soon the clouds disappeared and we were left in the sunshine for most of the walk from Fuente del Conde to Villanueva de Tapia and back.
After an initial uphill on a concrete road from the church we soon got into olive country on good tracks that were surprisingly dry considering how much rain we had on Wednesday night. Part of the route crossed through an olive grove which was good to walk on and then it was easy walking until the steep track in the village of Villanueva de Tapia which always catches you out but at least you know that there is a coffee stop awaiting you at the top of the hill. From there it is all downhill (honest) back to the car.
