    A slightly shorter but again nice undulating day, again walking on a mixture
    of quiet roads and earthen tracks (Very Muddy ones when we walked the route
    !!)

    Nowhere for coffee / lunch so make sure that you have a good breakfast
    before leaving in the morning and pack plenty of water as well as some
    snacks.

    Plenty of choices for both accommodation and restaurants for your evening
    meal in the medium sized town of Beana

    The Plaque at the start of The Camino Mozrabe
    4 more images

    Nice start to the walk with an easy walk out of Granada over fairly flat
    ground as far as Los Olivares but with quite a sting in the tail of the day
    as you then have 300m to gain in the last 2k.

    Walking on a mixture of quiet roads and earthen tracks.

    Plenty of opportunities for Coffee and lunch stops in the small towns and
    village's en-route and good a choice of accommodation in Moclin and one good
    bar in the square for your evening meal

    Perigrino (Birgit) fords river on Day 1

    As I previously mentioned in the introduction, we chose to split the route down into 17 manageable stages, I have written up these stages on the tips below along with a selection of photos to give you an idea of the terrain that you will walk through.
    I Hope this helps you in either the planning of your own Camino, or at least gives you an idea of what to expect if you walk this route yourself.
    If you need further info on The Camino Mozárabe then please feel free to drop me a line
    Buen Camino

    No snow!

    by raquelitalarga Updated Sep 4, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Sierra Nevada ski resort is 30 km from Granada. These slopes are popular with Portuguese, as well as Spanish, skiers. Problem is this is a region suffering from drought (check out the low level of the reservoirs). The local paper (Ideal) reported that 2008 was the worst ski season in 10 years due to lack of snow and unusually high winds.
    They do use artificial snow but check out the current conditions carefully.

    Pedal past La Alhambra

    by raquelitalarga Updated Mar 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Of course cycling is huge all over Spain but Granada has hills and mountains!
    There are popular routes all over this area, even the Alhambra hill!
    Go up past the famous monument, you'll get to the city cemetery (where Republicans were shot during the Civil War) carry on higher and paths snake all over the mountainside. Red squirrels leap from pine tree to tree ( exciting for an English person who usually only gets to see American grey interlopers!)

  • Skiing in the Sierra Nevada

    The first Snow

    If you're from a snowy country then you propbably won't think much of the Sierra Nevada, but if you're not then it's a great activity to do in the winter if you're in the area. Go to the fully functioning resorts where you can ski or get lessons. It's a great alternative activity in the south of Spain.

    Equipment: Ski's
    Poles
    Cold weather waterproof clothes!
