Discover a lesser-visited area of Spain as you ride past foothills and green valleys, touring between mountain villages and hilltop towns. Some sections are more demanding than others but you have the option of taking a transfer on the most demanding cycle day. Arriving in Granada is a great way to start the week, and you’ll have plenty of time here to visit the spectacular Alhambra fortress or reward yourself with a banquet of garlic prawns, stuffed peppers and Spanish omelette.

As you tour through rural villages, olive groves and historic cities, stop off to taste authentic tapas and fresh cheeses. Expect 13th century churches, magnificent fortresses and spectacular views across fertile plains and rolling vineyards. The castle at Alcalá la Real is a highlight and the white-washed houses of Zuheros village are typical of the region. Arriving in the city of Cordoba makes a magnificent end point for you to see its world famous mosque or sample some local wines in its authentic cellars.
