If you want to make an unforgettable journey, in touch with nature and local culture; if you want to travel in time and space, getting to know a large part of Andalusia in all its diversity; if you like cycling and contact with local people, then you simply must ride with us the Route of the Almoravids and Almohads, the first part from Granada to Ronda in 5 stages. If you would like to ride more days, you can continue with the second part from Ronda to Arcos (8 stages), Jerez (9 stages) or even on to El Puerto de Santa María at the Atlantic Sea (1o stages)!
On this journey you will get to grips with the roots of the ancient kingdom of Granada. Setting out from this city, we head southwest crossing the Almijara and Antequera Mountains, passing the beautiful El Chorro gorge and climbing to the mountain pass of the Wind (Puerto del Viento, 1190 m) to finish in romantic Ronda. These are just some of the places, peoples and pleasures that come together to form the backdrop for an unforgettable experience.
The bike route, its unspoilt and varied landscapes and its historic towns and cities – Ronda, Antequera, Alhama, Granada- form the heritage that you will share with the ‘romantic’ travellers of the 19th century who came from overseas to discover the sensuality and mysticism of Spain.
To sink in a little further, you will be able to explore the palaces and gardens of the Alhambra, immerse yourself in the medicinal waters of the Roman Spa in Alhama, savour a traditional ‘bienmesabe’ in Antequera or witness some quality flamenco.
Otros Caminos in co-operation with the prestigious Foundation El legado andalusí has developed the Mayor European Cultural Itinerary “The Route of the Almoravids and Almohads” as a historical and cultural cycling experience.
