Puerta del Infierno
Puerta del Infierno (Hell’s door) is the name of an exciting journey in the heart of the province of Cuenca, in Castile-La Mancha, Spain. The road snakes its way along the Río Escabas running through 3 unlit tunnels, known as Puerta del Infierno, Paso del Diablo (Devil’s pass) or Boca del Infierno (Hell’s mouth). It’s one of the most scenic canyon roads of Spain.
This very challenging cliff road was carved through the stone. Its many twists, turns and narrows can pose a challenge to even the most experienced drivers. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time. The road is subject to strong winds and rapid weather changes. Be prepared for the cold and wind!
The scenic road is called CUV-9031. It’s 6.0 km long and links the villages of Fuertescusa and Cañamares. The road, built in 1925, is asphalted but pretty narrow. The journey offers an exhilarating driving experience, with superb views. An incredible journey, an unforgettable experience. This is definitely one road trip that you want to record with lots of photographs. There are lots of viewpoints, official and unofficial. The road is a delight to drive, with every kind of twist and turn. Low traffic.
