    Day 2. Archidona Villanueva de Tapias - 17 km

    Our journey begins very early in Archidona and goes to one of our most popular woods, the meadow of oaks . Both are devoted to Iberian pigs and goats as the big game. The curves lead us to discover wooded dreamy landscapes . Until we suddenly peered into a hillock , the port of Palomeras , which is the most famous Andalusian landscape, olivar , occupying a ravine where three provinces meet. A Swabian descent and as we welcome our selected accommodation.

    Day 3. Villanueva de Tapias Villanueva de Algaidas - 16 km

    The Sierra del Pedroso, a rocky island in the middle of the cultivated plains . Indeed it is not the only surprise of the day , but that marks the early stages , insistent rise . After its time to leave behind the rocks and gradually losing altitude until you reach another kind of island, the stream of Drinker . This channel is a kind of oasis of greenery in the middle of aged olive groves with outstanding unthinkable that we will alleviate the way. The end seems near us when we are surprised again with a new change of scenery and the pretty village of Villanueva de Algaidas . We have deserved a good meal and a rest.

    Day 4. Villanueva de Algaidas to Cuevas Bajas - 10 km.

    Nothing better than visiting the Convent of Our Lady of Consolation of the Algaidas abandoned. But there is still a greater treasure hidden nearby, the Mozarabic cave church. The place seems ideal for meditation , especially going down to cross the river by the medieval bridge in a gully filled with lush vegetation. But we continue to climb to La Atalaya and from there we will find a privileged hill, the Cerro de la Cruz . From one of the best viewpoints in the province two farmhouses that once visited the Kidron (of Jewish origin) and the Moheda , andalusí. And in a few minutes we are in Cuevas Bajas, Genil village , where we expect its rich cuisine and excellent accommodation.

    Day 5. Cuevas Bajas Alameda - 18 km

    Although the stage is originally much longer , we have selected the most interesting stretch for us today . After a short approach in the vehicle we start walking in the heart of the olive territory. What we did not expect is the lagoon Sarteneja, full of birds at this time and with a good sheet of water . But of course , there is nothing to call us more attention than the spectacular farmhouses. Here we walk discussing what one is most impressive , if San Ramon, the Chapel , the Realengo we prefer “El Duende” because it means that we are near the end of our andancia today while we have taken more than a scare with the partridges , rabbits and hares.

    Day 6. Alameda Fuente de Piedra - 18 km.

    Alameda has left a bittersweet flavor knowing the story of the death of one of the most famous Andalusian bandits. They were very intense events that took its denouement in a nearby farmhouse , so we headed over there . Although the Sierra de la Camorra is not very high , its preeminence over the plain is looking us a good distance to think about all this. But it has taken us out of our reverie a flock of blue birds searching for food in the forest boundaries . colonies. What we did not expect the unusual greenery Brook Park Santillan , a place that interests us because we know now that it is one of the contributions that keeps alive the Laguna de Fuente de Piedra. Only a few kilometers to get to the town.

    Day 7. Free day

    Really we deserve this day of relative rest . We can dedicate ourselves to visit a bit this white Andalusian village deciding whether to go first to the Natural Reserve Laguna de Fuente de Piedra to see the flamingos and other birds or the dolmens of Antequera , recently declared a World Heritage Site . Our colleagues form Salamandra will help us to choose the best option.
