Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Priego de Cordoba

Day 2: Priego de Cordoba – Priego de Cordoba (20 km / 12 miles)

A short easy introductory ride today to become acquainted with our bikes and visit some of the local villages and hamlets such as Carcabuey and Zagrilla.

It combines the picturesque whitewashed and geranium-bedecked old Arab quarter with several magnificent churches from the Dordoban Baroque period.

Our hotel is a typical Andalusian hacienda on the shores of the lake. 

Day 5: Iznajar – Zuheros (48 km / 30 miles)

Today we ride around the Sierra Subbetica to the marvellous Moorish village of Zuheros (the name comes from the Arab word for rock, suhayra), with its 9th century castle perched high above the surrounding countryside and with the backdrop of the Sierra Subbética.
