Cycling holidays Andalusia

1001 Nights in the Occident.

Bullfights, tapas, fiestas, and flamenco are waiting for you in unique Andalusia. The southernmost region of Spain is a paradise full of surprises. Hardly any other landscape evokes such fascinating pictures as Andalusia: a Flamenco dancer in a flowing red dress, white villages on hills, Moorish palaces, and gloriously dressed bullfighters in crowded arenas. Experience an incomparable conglomeration of European and Arabic culture, scenic beauty harmonized perfectly with masterful architecture: Today’s Andalusia combines modernity with a rich tradition. We will guide you on well-developed routes and small roads without much traffic through lush overgrown hills, green river valleys and the wild landscape of the Sierras. You will visit Seville and Cordoba, the metropolises of the spiritual life in Moorish Andalusia. In the narrow streets, in the markets, in the buildings of the Real Alcazar, and the Mezquita you will travel through time and dream about days gone by, in which Andalusian scholars brought light to the darkness of the European Middle Ages. So ... come, eat and drink: cervezas, tapas, wine, and jamon iberico. Andalusia is awaiting you!

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. 

approx. 65 km
715 m
710 m

You will continue your journey along an old railway line passing vast olive groves to Baena. The inhabitants of Baena live mainly off of agriculture and are very tradition-conscious people. This is also reflected in the townscape of Baena, which is located on a hill. It is characterized by narrow streets that wind their way through the old town and where you can find interesting religious buildings such as the Church of Santa Maria la Mayor from the 16th century or the old castle.

 

approx. 45 km
310 m
380 m

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.

approx. 60 km
595 m
920 m

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.

 

approx. 60 km
305 m
340 m

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.

 

approx. 55 km
250 m
85 m

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.

 

approx. 25 km + train ride

Theres A. CH | 20.10.2018
Nicht zu unterschätzen
Die Route ist gut ausgewählt, doch mit den Hügeln (speziell am dritten Tag) nicht ganz zu unterschätzen. Angenehm vom Verkehr her. Programm mit den verschiedenen Führungen und kulturellen Orten gut zusammen gestellt. Alejandro war stets aufgestellt, hilfsbereit und sehr zuverlässig. Die Führung in Granada super! Der Empfang in Antequera durch Luisa eher etwas kratzbürstig. Die Hotels sind im Grossen und Ganzen gut. Teilweise liegen sie etwas weit weg vom Zentrum oder sind etwas muffelig. Doch Carmona war der absolute Highlight! Unbedingt beibehalten.
