This route begins in the Plaza de la Iglesia de Santa María, a magnificent 16th century church built in the gothic-renaissance style. The route goes past the old town hall, which nowadays houses several municipal services and is the site of the projected museum, and then goes down Calle Ramón y Cajal to the Plaza de la Constitución, traditionally the heart of the village. Then it heads for the oldest part of the village up the steps of Calle Sánchez Canovas and Calle Carasol through tightly-packed houses and grey. Halfway along Calle Cinto Baja, the lovely Casa de los Patiños, a 16th century noble house which has an inner courtyard surrounded by a wooden gallery with a typical Castillian balustrade.

Going down Calle Juan Morenilla (also known as “horse street”) you arrive at la Plaza de San Antón, from whose centre it is assumed the town originally developed. Here there is a small hermitage where on 27th December, the Hermandad de las Ánimas (Brotherhood of the Spirit) celebrates its curious traditional dances of Cascaborras and the Innocents. The route continues zigzagging between alleys, until it reaches Las Viñas, and after crossing the old Barrio de San Gregorio comes to the Plaza de España, which maintains a noble air due to its impressive buildings built at the beginning of the 20th century by wealthy families and still in excellent condition today. Moving on the route circles the the church and goes up Calle del Coronel Capaz (also known as the ‘street of ice’ due its harsh winter cold), home of la Casa de los González Olivares, an interesting early 19th century building whose large balconies overlook the main altar of the neighbouring church.

The last part of the the circuit climbs up Calle Barroeta (also known as ‘downhill street’) which until the 1980’s was still the road which connected Huéscar and Murcia, and through la Plaza de Cristo Rey the current centre of business in the area. Finally it it turns back towards its original point of departure passing along Paseo de las Santas Mártires (Saint Alodía y Saint Nunilón, the town’s two patron saints), the shops of Calle Juan Carlos Iand finally the pedestrianised Calle Juan José Clemente.
