Infos & Booking


The Espolon de la Virgen via ferrata in Rodellar allows you to discover a high place of climbing in Spain and this village nestled in the heart of the Sierra de Guara Natural Park.

The route of this via ferrata proposes to go up the Espolon de la Virgen, a vertical wall which allows to reach a sublime point of view on the famous Mascun canyon. The descent is made by a succession of short abseils in the dry canyon of the Virgen. The landscapes which surround you are of an extraordinary beauty and with a little luck, you will be able to observe large raptors whose nests are located in the surrounding cliffs.

This route is open to all, especially children, and is particularly suitable for spending a good time with family or friends.

The nice approach walk that starts from Rodellar overlooks and then crosses the Mascun river several times before arriving at the start of the via ferrata. The first part goes up a steep and vertiginous rock pillar, but well equipped with bars, which allow you to gain height quickly. A short transition walk leads to the second part, even more vertiginous and impressive, which goes up along a ridge to the top of the cliff and then to the hermitage of the Virgin of Rodellar where the panorama is breathtaking. The return can be done on a path or better, via the dry canyon of the Virgen which will be the opportunity to make 3 abseils of 6, 5 and 12 meters high.
