The term of Menasalbas is watered by the stream of Villapalos and Torcón River, a tributary of the Tagus, which rises in the north slopes of the Montes de Toledo and maintains a watercourse dams in the swamps of Torcón I, and supplies drinking water excellent quality to the city of Toledo, and Torcón II that caters to the people of the commonwealth that bears his name, in a setting of incomparable beauty in which the primitive oak remains in the granite lanchar between a thicket of Mt.

This route starts on the road to San Pablo Menasalbas in its km 5. In the area known as Tower Bridge. Runs through the branch of the royal gorge that reaches Sales with Peña Aguilera along the banks of Villapalos stream. Among lush vegetation of oak and ash we can contemplate the two water mills that not many decades ago were still in operation. Following másgenes swamp on its southern side Torcón got to the river, to continue upstream, perfectly integrated into the landscape, and admire other mills, true examples of popular architecture.
