Welcome to Senés, a hospitable and friendly village of white and slate that opens its doors to you to greatly enjoy. Here you breathe pure air. Think that where you step other feet have walked for hundreds of years and have left their print with effort and respect. We suggest you follow the blue arrows to discover the history, the traditions, the beauty of the vegetable gardens and orchards, the magic of the stone in the houses and in the terracing, the vitality of the water in The Fountain and in the irrigation channels, and so many beautiful corners that others built over time. Walk sedately, observe, enjoy. Travel back in time and tell anyone who wants to listen that humble happiness lives here.

At the beginning of the route a sculpture pays tribute to the emigrants, who had to abandon Senés in search of a livelihood. We continue to the vegetable gardens and orchards, some still under cultivation, where the water works its magic and the slate appears in true works of art in terracing and façades. Between streets with white, slate and flowers we visit the Moors & Christians Interpretation Centre, a tradition lost in time. Following the way of the water, next to the old watermill and the large irrigation pool, we arrive at The Fountain, where we find The House of the Water, which explains one of the best-preserved hydraulic complexes in Andalucía, with a fountain, irrigation pool, laundry and watermill. From there we go up to the old Olive Mill, restored and explained, and we will enjoy the beautiful roofs with slate eaves, some unique views of the old Fortress and the imposing mountain range and ravines. We will walk following the arrows to the Rey Felipe VI square, where the Santa María Church is located, with the Divine Face, patron saint of Senés, some very special paintings and a mysterious gravestone. We will continue through steep, narrow streets between slate houses to the two viewpoints, old threshing floors. From there we go down to the start of the route, discovering new charming corners.

And to recharge batteries, it is essential to enjoy the tapas in the bars.

If as well as this route you want to discover the surroundings you can take the 4.7-kilometre Castle track, which starts at The Fountain. If you have more time and the desire to do more kilometres, you can follow the stretches of the GR 244 track which connect with the neighbouring villages of Velefique and Castro de Filabres.
