The Camino de Santiago or Way of St. James, is the pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in north-western Spain. Legend has it that the remains of the apostle, Saint James the Great, are buried here. As pilgrims traditionally started their journey from their own home, different Camino ways emerged over the years. Probably one of the most ancient Pilgrim’s ways in Spain is this one: The Mozarabic Way to Santiago. The name honors Christians (called Mozarabs) who were living in the Muslim territory of Al-Andalus and knew about the discovery of the remains of the Apostle Santiago in Compostela. They risked their lives to travel to Santiago, via the immense distance that separated them from the South to the remains of the Apostle. They not only had to cross on foot Al-Andalus, they still had to take the Via de la Plata travel through Castilian lands to reach the north of the Peninsula. This tour gives you the opportunity to connect the cities of Granada and Cordova with their world cultural heritages: the marvelous “Alhambra” in Granada and the stunning “Mezquita” in Cordova. Betake a journey through time and across unique landscapes and natural reserves that feature along the way. Ride through landscapes with tranquil hills of olive groves, holm-oak woods, vegetable gardens and vineyards, rushing streams, imposing watchtowers, proud castles, impeccable farmhouses and humble farmsteads, all giving the backdrop to an unforgettable visit. Enjoy the villages, castles, churches and towns that stretch before you just waiting to be discovered, such as Moclín, Tózar, Alcalá la Real, Alcaudete, Zuheros, Castro del Río, Baena, that now give their name to some of the world's finest olive oils. You will find them the perfect place to relax and recover lost energy with the best food and wines this region has to offer. Feel the history on every kilometer, and even at night, when you sleep in an old convent or in the former prison!
