There is a very small village. The village lies 4km southwest of Santo Domingo de Silos. It takes an hour on foot. It is called Hinojar de Cervera. I went to the village to look at the Yecla Gorge.

Hinojar de Cervera is very quiet and beautiful village. I did not meet any villagers at all. According to the 2012 sensus, the village has a population of 13 inhabitants. After walking around the village, I headed to the Yecla Gorge. Walking about 10 minutes, arrived at Yecla Tunnel.

The Nature of Yecla is a narrow and deep gorge, these rocks are limestones.  Its length is 250 meters, so it only took about 15 minutes to walk the entire length of the gorge.
