Between the 11th and 13th centuries, the Almoravids and Almohads ruled over the territory of Al-Ándalus. This route offers a chance to discover their architectural heritage, in the shape of the various castles and defensive elements along the way. It is 400 kilometres long, and goes from the town of Tarifa to Granada via two branches, passing through different towns and villages in the interior and on the coasts of Malaga and Cadiz. Jerez de la Frontera and Ronda are just a couple of the places you'll visit on your trip.

This itinerary, which forms part of the Routes of the Al-Andalus heritage, has been designated a Major Cultural Route by the Council of Europe
