Benaojan

Benaojan

We leave Montejaque and continue over the Mures Mountains to another Moorish village: Benaojan. This is Arabic for the House of the Bakers. There are some 1,600inhabitants in this small white village and it also belonged to the Counts of Benavente. The village lives from the manufacturing of pork products basically. Its railway station, Benaojan Estación, is only a few miles away on the river bank and has become a real tourist highlight. From the north side of the village, along the abysses and peaks, you will arrive at the prehistorically Panteon of Andalusia, the Pileta Caves (Cueva de la Pileta).
