Lucena -Baena 45 km

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 of the old castle.

Day 4

Baena - Cordoba 60 km

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 downhill, with one slightly longer and some shorter climbs towards Cordoba. Every now and then, you will pass farms, which specialize in the breeding of fighting bulls and enjoy a special reputation in Andalusia. In Cordoba explore the witnesses of the dazzling cosmopolitan past. With the Great Mosque Moorish architects created one of the most powerful Moorish buildings in Europe.

Day 5

Cordoba – Palma del Rio 60 km

In the wide valley of the Guadalquivir, you will leave Cordoba 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.

Day 6

Palma del Rio – Carmona 55 km

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.

Day 7

Carmona – Seville 25 km + train ride

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. Train ride starting from Brenes (where you return the bikes) to 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.
