Mascarat Canyon

“El Barranco del Mascarat” is a short deep canyon that cuts through the Sierra Bernia mountain range in north-south direction. It is spanned by three bridges (from S to N): the old national road built in the 19th century, the actual national road N-322 and the railroad bridge. It can be approached from the south and hiked up about 1 km, getting narrower and narrower until further passage is blocked. The name “Mascarat” derives from a gang of robbers led by a masked man that used to roam the area. A bit of a spooky place, especially when one encounters the half-rotten cadaver of a dead dog…
