Écija Palacio Peñaflor

Seville enchants

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.

This Greenway has a Protected Natural Area: the ZIC (Zone of Community Importance) Laguna de Fuente de Piedra.

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 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.

We leave Ronquillo on the N630, driving approximately 4.5 km to the turn-off to Almadén de la Plata, on the A8175 road. We will travel 8.5 km until we reach a crossroads where we will have to continue on the left, always towards Almadén de la Plata, along the same A8175, for 9 km, until we reach Almadén. In this stage we will enter the Sierra Norte Natural Park.
