The road starts climbing higher on the left side of the damn. We are going to a property called las Saleguillas, with an open field around it then you come to La arroyo de la Cañada it is a stream. Which end up at the property called Chaparral. If you leave the property behind you, we will come to the road of Montefrio, and ancient Royal Cañada (remember a men made stone fence) of Íllora, not in use anymore.
