The Camino Andalucia or Mozarabe was traditionally the route pilgrims would take from the South of Spain to join up with the Via de la Plata, before continuing their journey to Santiago de Compostela. It is thought that this is one of the oldest original routes of the Camino de Santiago and it follows an ancient route from the stunning city of Granada, through Cordoba and on to Merida.
Along the way, it passes some of the finest Roman and Moorish structures on the entire Iberian Peninsula. The route itself travels along the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, through olive and orange groves. The low green hills, white villages and hilltop castles are synonymous with the region. The Alhambra in Granada and the Mezquita in Cordoba are two of the most stunning structures in the world and are not to be missed. With a combination of UNESCO World Heritage sites and beautiful, peaceful, rural landscapes, this is definitely a Camino route not to be missed.
