San Nicolás del Puerto Puente de Piedra

Sevilla enamora

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 Cazalla de la Sierra until we reach the exit of the village, on the A455 towards the train station and Constantina. After descending 8km along the A455 we will arrive at the Cazalla/Constantina Station, cross the railway tracks, and after about 200 metres, we will come to a crossroads where we will have to turn right towards Constantina.

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.

The Sierra Greenway alternates between the provinces of Seville and Cadiz. Coripe, El Coronil and Montellano are the mountain villages on the Seville side.

All these villages, immersed in the Sierra Sur of Seville, are typical of the region, with whitewashed walls, flowerpots and Moorish roofs.

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.
