Écija Iglesia de los Descalzos

Seville, beautiful and diverse

This route has been declared of tourist interest and is promoted by the Vía Verde de la Sierra Sierra Foundation.

Like the Sierra de Becerrero, this mountainous area next to the town of Gilena belongs to the Sub-Baetic Zone, one of the outlying areas of the Baetic Mountains, and is made up of marl and limestone. The highest point in the sierra is the Acebuchosa peak, at 663 m.

The Metropolitan Green Corridor connects La Corchuela Periurban Park with various municipalities in the Seville Metropolitan Area through two bicycle lanes. This encourages the use of non-motorised transport, without overlooking the significant opportunities for recreational and tourist use, given its landscape quality and cultural and architectural heritage.

We leave the A-375 in the direction of Seville, looking for the turning to the left that indicates Las Cabezas de San Juan on the A-8128. After 28 kilometres we reach a junction with the A371 where we turn right towards Las Cabezas de San Juan. We will continue along this road for 12.5 kilometres until we reach the municipality, where we will arrive at Avenida Dr. Fleming.

We will start the route on Avenida Dr. Fleming in Las Cabezas de San Juan until we reach a roundabout. We will have to turn right on Calle Blas Infante. After 100 metres we come to a crossroads where we must continue straight on along the Avenida de Jesús Nazareno, where we leave Las Cabezas and take the SE-5208 road.

Coming from Fuentes de Andalucía on the A-407 and about 300 metres away from the entrance, tourists should take the turn-off that leads to the municipality of Lantejuela. After 31 metres along Calle Virgen del Rosario, tourists must turn right into Calle Blas Infante and continue until leaving the village on the SE-7201 road towards La Puebla de Cazalla.

We leave Coripe along the main avenue, looking for the signs to the Greenway along the A8126. We will descend a steep slope to the River Guadalporcún and, after crossing it, we will have to turn right following the signs to the Greenway.

The route of the Greenway is 15 kilometres long and passes through 10 tunnels, the largest of which are illuminated.
