On this occasion we will have the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the ancient Christian pilgrims who lived in Arab kingdoms on their way to Santiago de Compostela.
After the Muslim domination initiated at the beginning of the 8th century, much of the peninsula underwent changes that marked, among other aspects, the religious life of the inhabitants of the old Visigothic Christian kingdom. When the appearance of the Sepulcher of the Apostle Santiago spread, many Christians would try to pilgrimage to Compostela so that through this path and coming from different points they converged in the old Cordova to go to Mérida and to ascend by the Vía de la Plata. To begin this route we moved to the Canal de los Franceses, a titanic work executed at the end of the 19th century by French engineers, to bring water to the extraction operations of the Darro River. We will continue along the fresh bank of Arroyo Belén to pass through the Hermitage of Santo Cristo de Almecín and the Cortijo Belén.
Continue until reaching the Cortijo de Jesus del Valle and continue along the Darro River until you reach the beautiful neighborhood of Sacromonte to make an urban route through the main viewpoints that offer us these impressive prints of the Alhambra and to know the most Muslim part of Granada.
