The SA-201/CC-167 from La Alberca to Las Mestas

15 May 2023 6:11 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

This section of road was part of a longer trip from Leon to our evening hotel at Las Mestas but really only becomes interesting for 12 miles after leaving La Alberca.

La Alberca is a picturesque village with National Historic Monument Status with many half timbered buildings, so could make a good place for a break.  Though parking seemed at a premium when we passed through. 

Leave La Alberca heading South on the SA-201 towards Las Mestas

The first section of the road climbs up through tree lined gently sweeping roads to a viewing spot at Mirador del Portillo the highest point.

From there it gets really fun as the road descends steeply with numerous switch backs (we have no power steering so required full lock on some bends).

After about 10 miles the road becomes the CC-167 as it enters a different district.  

Carry on to the T-junction and take the CC-166 left towards Salamanca.

Shortly after the junction you will see a yellow sign directing you left to the Hospederia Hurdes Reales. Our home for the night with great views and safe undercover parking.  

Or simply carry on along the CC-166 through more sweeping valley roads before joining the EX204 at the T-junction.  From here you can turn left towards Salamanca or in our case right towards Coria.
