The Washington Irving Bike Route

Fascinated by Andalusí culture, Washington Irving travelled this Route (formerly both border country and trade route), covering the distance that joins and separates two historical and geographical poles of Al-Andalus. The dawn and dusk of cultures, East and West, Al Mutamid and Boabdil. Seville (capital of al-Andalus in 1163) and Granada (capital of the Nazrid kingdom from 1231) are two places spatially set apart, but united by a joint trajectory and the same mix of blood. Both Moorish, both Christian, they share and reveal the history and culture of al-Andalus. Seville and Granada are at the same time one Andalusia and two peoples, one heartbeat and two ways of seeing and feeling. To travel from one to the other is to make a sentimental journey through time.

Following the footsteps of the illustrious writer, the entire Route goes crosscountry.
