LOCATION AND ACCESS
The granite boulder area or berrocal of Peraleda de San Román extends from the River Gualija to the west to the vicinity of Valdelacasa de Tajo to the east. The River Tajo crosses it between the Arab fortresses of Espejel and Alija to form a deep canyon, cleft, or defile of almost vertical walls that are today mainly covered by the Valdecañas Reservoir. The “Cancho Castillo” is a huge “tor” situated in the berrocal of the common grazing land of Peraleda. It can be reached by a winding road some 5 Km long that leaves from the junctions of the Calvario de Peraleda towards Laguna Vieja, which is also located on the common grazing ground.
