We look out of the windows of Anguiano


The mountains surrounding the Riojan town of Anguiano hide beautiful, almost magical places. Caves with curious legends, crags that even tell us what time it is at a certain moment of the day or spectacular spots with breathtaking views such as those that await us at the The Windows viewpoint. A balcony from which we can look out over the valley where the town is located, while we are carefully observed by the vultures that guard these crags.


Itinerary of the route to the viewpoint The Windows


From Acebaleda to The Windows 0.9 Km


In the middle of the Regatillo track, where routes such as the Serradero or Peñas run, we find the start of this interesting route. Specifically, the start awaits us shortly before reaching the Eras de Anguiano neighbourhood, in the spot known as La Acebaleda (0h 00min). One of the signposts of the Routes between beech forests marks the exact spot where we must leave the track. Right there begins a narrow path that ascends the mountainside, almost parallel to the track we have left behind.

Our path crosses the mountainside between pastures and small boxwood forests, while the Regatillo track gets lower and lower.


After a while, on our left we can already see the crags we are heading towards. Our path takes us easily to the edge of these colossal crags, where we can already see the hollows known as The Windows (0h 25min). Once at the top of the crags we can enjoy beautiful views that we can enlarge if we go up to the apex of the mountain on which the crags we are visiting are located. Once you have enjoyed this spot, all you have to do is return to the starting point along the same route you ascended.​


Tips for doing the The Windows viewpoint route

1-Even if you are not doing any of the routes that pass through the starting point of this path, you can take a walk from Anguiano to get to know this viewpoint, the total route would be just over 6 km.

2-SIf, on the other hand, you are coming doing one of these routes, you should not miss the opportunity to go to the viewpoint, although it is important to assess your level of tiredness, as it is just another effort.

3-The route by itself is not very physically demanding, the slope is easy to overcome and the distance, even including the return journey, is not at all remarkable..

4-Even if you only come exclusively to visit the viewpoint, make sure you equip yourself properly, as it is still a mountain trail.
