The remains/ruins of one of the station buildings. They are quite ornate though this is only the second one we have come across so far. Apparently a number of its fellows have been converted into rest stops, cafes, accommodation and even cycle hire shops.
We have just approached a via duct that crosses this valley. The Rio (river) flowing through below is the Rio Guadojoz.
Viaduct de Rio Guadajoz, with two impatient dogs waiting to cross

The Rio Guadojoz feeds into this laguna (lake.) We stopped here for our picnic lunch before turning and retracing our steps back to the car.
On our way back
