Garruchal Mountain Pass

Puerto del Garruchal
Parque Regional El Valle y Carrascoy
-Murcia-

Spanish name: Puerto del Garruchal

Puerto del Garruchal Garruchal is one of the three passes in the mountain range south of the Segura river, separated from the Mar Menor coastal depression. This mountain pass, known for its many reedbeds, is in the El Valle y Carrascoy wildlife reserve, between the municipalities of Beniaján and Cañadas de San Pedro.
 
The road that goes up to the mountain pass used to be a Roman pathway and later a farming trail. The road goes along the Garruchal ravine, which during the rainy season collects water from other ravines (El Soldado, La Tercia, Los Puros) that is then used to irrigate farming lots in the Beniaján area. Archaeological remains have been found in this pass, including traces of Roman pathway and the Puntarrón Chico Argarian village.
