This month we will showcase one of our most beautiful hotels on the quieter and less well-known Camino Mozarabe.
The Camino Mozarabe from Granada to Cordoba
If we were to recommend our favourite Camino to Santiago de Compostela, we would simply tell you that it is impossible to choose as they are all unique for different reasons.
However, if we had to select one Camino for its enchanting landscapes and fascinating history and architecture, the Camino Mozarabe would be our top pick.
Atelier 88 on the Camino Mozarabe
This month, we are introducing one of our spectacular hotels on this captivating route that will take you between the splendid Moorish cities of Granada and Cordoba, through spectacular olive groves, citrus orchards, and the famous white-washed villages known as ‘Pueblos Blancos’.
Halfway through your 10-day Camino adventure, you will arrive in Alcala la Real, in the province of Jaen. The historical town is one of the highlights on the Camino Mozarabe, with its winding streets, orange tree-lined plazas, and imposing medieval fortress.
Atelier 88 is located here and is one of our top hotels on this route.
This charming central B&B is the ideal option for an overnight stay in Alcala la Real after a day on the Camino. The historic house was tastefully converted and even includes a salt-water pool.
The Mediterranean patio is the perfect spot for an early evening drink, before exploring the town.
For a real taste of Alcala la Real on the Camino Mozarabe, do not miss the local dish ‘Pollo a la Secretaria, a flavourful chicken stew cooked in local olive oil, fresh herbs and spices, wine, Mediterranean vegetables, and of course delicious Spanish ham. The perfect conclusion to a walking day!
Angela and Ash from Atelier 88 encourage everyone to discover this lesser-known but stunning Camino route.
Here is their message to anyone thinking of embarking on the Camino Mozarabe :
“We look forward to welcoming you to Atelier88, Alcalá la Real. Whether you are just passing through en route to the next destination or decide to stay with us a little longer and enjoy some well earned R&R☀️ The therapeutic benefits of our saltwater pool are always appreciated after a day’s hiking, especially at the end of a long warm day.”
