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 of Cervera is a village in the municipality of Santo Domingo de Silos , in the province of Burgos. It is located in the Natural Park of La Yecla.
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 Yecla Gorge is an extremely narrow and deep cleft in the rocks with a river running at the bottom, the river is called Arroyo del Cauce.
Walking through the gorge using a constructed walkway suspended about 3 or 4 metres above the river.
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.
The region is protected areas of wildlife, about 100 pairs of vultures have inhabited here.
