Since this Tuesday, April 6th, the Hispania Nostra Association, the GR-10, also named E-7, is a historic European trail that crosses the nature reserves located around the old County of Miranda del Castañar and its villages, listed among the most beautiful in Spain.
Dream places such as the Sierra de Candelario, Quilamas, Reserva Peña de Francia and Batuecas, and historic towns and villages such as Candelario, Miranda del Castañar, Mogarraz and La Alberca mark this privileged itinerary. However, all this region belongs to what has been called “abandoned Spain”, and the road, used since ancient times by muleteers, fell into oblivion in the 50s of the last century.
However, now, the Buen Camino association is determined to restore the path to its former importance. To do so, they have turned to the association Hispania Nostra in order to launch a crowdfunding campaign that will allow them to signpost the route from Horcajo de Montemayor to Miranda del Castañar (20 km).

How much money the association needs
It is not easy: they have set a minimum goal of $2,100 (€1,800) and an optimum of $56,400 (€47,500). In addition, there is not much time: the deadline they have set is until April 20th.
The Buen Camino association explained that “we have spent several years rediscovering and altruistically marking the first stretch, called Camino de los Enamorados -in memory of Hortensia and Kiko, swept away by the waters of the Alagón River in 1940-, which runs between Pinedas and Miranda. The financing has come from our own funds and the investment of our vacation time and weekends”.
“Thanks to all this, we have been able to enjoy and make contact with this forgotten path, discover its hidden cobblestones, its Roman bridge devastated by the fierce Alagón, repair its footbridge, clean its fountains, enjoy its gastronomic resources, such as wine, oil, cold meats and honey, as well as listen to the best witnesses of the oblivion of these places, its elderly neighbors and the singing of its birds. In short, we intend to value and recover the area, as when the Romans 2000 years ago took the treasures of the Cabenes through these roads. 4,175 were invested in phase 0 of planning, to document between Pinedas and Miranda, destined to Geolocation, marking and signage in municipalities. Not counting the time and dedication contributed by the promoters and volunteers,” they add.
There is a good incentive to collaborate: donations are tax deductible up to 80% on the first $178 (€150) (i.e., the Treasury would refund $142.6 (€120) on the next income tax return). Therefore, donating €150 would actually “cost” us $35,6 (€30).
