Mountain biking route through Gredos and La Vera. Paradores
Imagine riding your bike through gorges, oak and chestnut groves and across meadows. The variety of landscapes offered by these vast territories form part of these cycling routes that take you to areas so surprising and of such great scenic beauty that you won't forget them.Day 1. Departure. Sunday. Parador de OropesaThe first stop on our route is the medieval village of Oropesa, located between the Sierra de Gredos and Extremadura. Oropesa’s hallmark is its castle. A medieval fortress overlooking the mountains, visible from the road and declared a historic-artistic monument.Day 2. Monday. Parador de Gredos.From the province of Toledo we move on to the province of Ávila. Our second stop takes us to the Parador de Gredos. A special place because it was the first in the network, opened by King Alfonso XIII in 1928; but above all because of the spectacular views of the Sierra de Gredos from its terraces.Day 3. Tuesday. Parador de Jarandilla de la Vera.Bordering the Sierra de Gredos and crossing into Extremadura we reach our third stop: Jarandilla de la Vera. The place that enchanted Emperor Charles V, who chose the old castle-palace of the Counts of Oropesa in Jarandilla to rest.
