It is a 10 kilometres trak to discover the mountains that were used to extract gold at romans time and the woods that later supplied the numerous forges and mallets that the village had.

When you finished the route, you should take a stroll along the streets of Bisuyu. The writer Alejandro Casona was born here and lived in the village the earliest years of his life.
Some charming places of the village inspired emblematic works as “La casa de los siete balcones”, in reference to the Besullo’s house where the school was located. Alejandro Casona said: ‘I thought I hace found the heaven on earth in my own valleys’. Nowadays, some places related to his life and works are preserved.
