What a great stop over, we were only going to stay one or maybe two nights and we ended up staying four nights. The camper stop is located right on the Via Verde which is a old railway line and now a cycle path. The camper stop was 3 euros per night, 3 euros per night for electric, fresh water, grey water and WC dump are free of charge. There are also toilets and the use of a shower for 1 euro for 4 minutes. Every morning the local bakery also arrive at 9am so you can get fresh bread. https://www.searchforsites.co.uk/markerMobile.php?id=32734
The Vía Verde de la Subbética is part of the protected Natural Park of the Sierras Subbéticas. The park was designated a natural park in 1988. It is home to one of southern Spain’s largest breeding colonies of griffon vultures, as well as around 70 other bird species, like booted Bonelli’s and short-toed eagles. The park is mainly made out of limestone plateaus and is very scenic.
We have just bought Lily a dog trailer and this was the perfect place to try it out and see if she liked it.
On day one we cycled to Cabra and stopped for a picnic at the old railway station before turning around and cycling back.
On day two we cycled in the opposite direction to Lucque, again stopping enroute for a picnic and to enjoy the stunning views.
We will certainly be looking for more Via Verdes as we all had a brilliant time.
