Route 02 (Orihuela - Los Huertos - Media Legua - L

The tour begins in the Los Huertos fairground parking lot, with a large parking area, heading down Calle San Juan and later the Ronda de Santo Domingo to the Puerta de la Olma, one of the two doors that formed the wall that protected the suburb of San Juan. From this door it was possible to access the Camino Viejo de Callosa, in addition, it is the only entrance door to the city that remains standing after the collapse of the walls by order of Felipe V after the War of the Spanish Succession.

We will continue along the Camino Viejo de Callosa to enter the Senda Masquefa, which we will leave along the Vereda Ancha to finally cross the train tracks through the tunnel that will lead us to the Acequia de Millanares, next to which we will continue our itinerary.

The Vereda Don Fernando will be our next objective, crossing the CV-91 towards the Camino Viejo de Almoradí, leading us to the Church of Nuestra Señora del Pilar, declared an Asset of Local Relevance. Crossing the Segura river along the Vereda el Rincón, we will go to the Church of Ecce Homo, located in the center of the Molins district.

We will approach the Segura river along the Vereda el Marques, following its right bank until we turn off onto the CV-9220 and the Molins road. We will go up the footbridge that crosses the train tracks, making out behind it the rehabilitated bullring of Orihuela, which maintains its original historical and architectural values, indicating in turn that we only have a few meters to go along the CV-921 to our final point of the tour.
