Chequilla
The people of Chequilla is situated in the far southeastern province of Guadalajara, in the middle of Natural Park alto tajo.

Chequilla is in a green mountainous environment irrigated by the river Cabrillas. This is one of the major tributaries of the Tagus in his tour of the Nature Reserve.

The most curious feature of Chequilla is that their white houses stand alongside impressive stone moles red sandstone.

The stones of Chequilla originated in the Triassic lower makes about 180 million years, in a process of sedimentation in the regression of the sea. They consist of siliceous rocks and iron carbonates, the latter element that gives them their characteristic red color.

A village of only 20 inhabitants, but you have obligations to visit.
