Andalusia

Andalusia

1001 Nights in the Occident.

Expect vast expanses, rolling hills and impressive Spanish coastline. Expect picturesque cities and Moorish influences in architecture and lifestyle. Vast and fascinating, this is Andalusia! You cannot get any closer to the impressive region in southernmost Spain than by bike. On the nine-day bike tour you will soon feel how harmoniously European and Arab culture merge here. Almost every day you hop onto your bike and immerse yourself in the world of bullfighters, fiestas and the world-famous flamenco. Of course, there is enough time for your own explorations. It’s also practical that you don’t have to worry about your suitcases during a cycle tour without luggage.

Itinerary

Walk through the historic centre of Antequera with its 30 steeples.

Welcome briefing and bikefitting in the morning.The bike tour will begin with a ride on the old railway line through the beautiful countryside to Lucena. In one of the most important olive oil-producing regions of the world, the famous oil is pressed in the mills.

You will continue your journey along an old railway line passing vast olive groves. Wonderful views over the hills accompany the cyclists. The inhabitants of the region live mainly from agriculture and are very tradition-conscious people. This is also reflected in towns of Cabra, Zuheros and Dona Mencia.

The Sierra Morena with its foothills frames the former European Capital of Culture. This romantic area is surrounded by pine forests and an impressive solitude. The route leads on almost empty streets mostly hilly towards Córdoba. Every now and then, you will pass farms, which specialize in the breeding of fighting bulls and enjoy a special reputation in Andalusia. In Córdoba explore the witnesses of the dazzling cosmopolitan past. With the Great Mosque Moorish architects created one of the most powerful Moorish building in Europe.

In the wide valley of the Guadalquivir, you will leave Córdoba on an old Roman connecting road. Ecija is the capital of horse breeding. From once important Franciscan monastery in Palma del Rio, the monks journeyed to America to proselytize.

Also today, the Guadalquivir is the first companion. You will continue your tour through the Campiña of Seville, a gently rolling landscape of fertile farmland to the west. Carmona is a city that has not changed for 150 years, it has Baroque palaces, churches and monasteries and is surrounded by intact Moorish town walls.

Today, you will cycle over the gently rolling plateau of Alcores to one of the most fertile agricultural areas in Andalusia. For centuries, Alcalá de Guadaira supplied Seville with bread and water and it is considered to be one of the cradles of flamenco. Former haciendas of the Kingdom of Seville, today just as large farms as in former times, line the road. Our destination is Seville, where three of the most important operas are performed: Don Juan, the seducer; the cunning barber Figaro; and Carmen, the femme fatale, who lost her life somewhere between the tobacco factories and the bullfight arena. Two international exhibitions helped the city to futuristic buildings and great green parks.

The route

The bike routes are alternately flat and hilly. You will cycle on bike paths (former railway lines) and side roads. In some cases, you will find yourself on roads with more traffic, especially when entering or leaving a city.
