How to come to Valdesangil



Valdesangil is only 2,5 km away from Béjar, a
major town thet will serve as our indications reference.


The routes from locations in Catalonia, east coast and
southeast of Andalucía suppose passing by Madrid, so we give the
indications from Madrid. For illustrative purposes we note some tours
from other regions, although we believe that all paths can be very
interesting. Distances and estimated journey time is taken from the 'Campsa'
website, so times are only indicative and are usually shorter than those
shown.
