These are the mountains of Almijara, Antequera, Libar, Alcornocales, and finally Cabrito. You will finish in Tarifa, the wind capital of Spain, with the mighty Atlantic Ocean at your feet.

Granada, the Alhambra and the city's meadow, the Alhama mountains, the picturesque Axarquia region, Antequera and its stunning Torcal mountain, the El Chorro gorge, the Ronda mountains, the Cortes Nature Reserve, the Alcornocales mountains, the magnificent views out to Africa from Tarifa…these are just some of the places, peoples and pleasures that you will discover as you ride the ancient trails of Andalusia.
