Walk the Lesser-Trodden Path of The Camino Mozárabe Pilgrimage in Andalucía
Boutique Spain-specialist travel company, TOMA & COE, is offering a new take on the Camino de Santiago, St James’ Way. Instead of walking the traditional route from southern France or northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela, guests follow the 100km ancient path taken from Malaga to Córdoba by the Mozárabes; these were the Christians who lived under Islamic rule in Al-Andalus, an era which lasted nearly 800 years.
TOMA & COE's new The Camino Mozárabe Pilgrimage tour takes place from 18th - 26th September 2018.
The Camino Mozárabe tour is an eight-night, seven-day walking route from Malaga to Córdoba, offering stunning mountain scenery in the less discovered parts of Andalucía, as well as fascinating history, culture, and superb Andalucian food. The route takes walkers past Roman, Jewish and Mozárabe (Islamic-era Christian) remains, celebrating the cultural richness of Andalusia’s past, an era of religious tolerance which saw Jewish, Muslim and Christian inhabitants of the region live together peacefully until the 15th century.
Starting in the cultural hub of Malaga, the scenic route takes in vineyards, oak forests, olive and almond groves, mountains and verdant valleys, following mule tracks and footpaths into deepest rural Andalucia.
The hiking ranges from easy to challenging, but you will be unlikely to meet other walkers on these seldom-ventured paths. This is a fabulous opportunity to appreciate the natural beauty of southern Spain in spring, when warm days, with trees and wildflowers in full bloom, offer perfect hiking conditions.
During the walk, accommodation is in simple farmhouses in small provincial towns and villages, with delicious Andalucian meals using fresh local produce, allowing walkers to rest and refuel in comfort before the next stage of the walk. Guests stay in stylish boutique hotels for the two nights in Malaga and Córdoba.
