The Ruta Medieval is a beautiful linear walk connecting the villages Pórtugos, Atalbéitar, Ferreirola and Busquístar in the Taha valley and Cástaras, Nieles and Juviles. The wooden waymarking posts guide you from west to east. We’ll be happy to drive you to the start of the walk in Juviles.
We have a description and a map of the route – roughly 21 kilometres from our hotel to Busquístar, following the medieval paths from east to west.
This is the description and the GPS track that includes the stretch from us to Juviles.
You can come back using the Granada – Bérchules bus, click here for schedules of the ALSA bus services, or we’ll be happy to pick you up from Busquístar.
A nice two day round trip suggestion might be:
day 2: Juviles to Trevélez and Busquístar (or Pórtugos) following the longer footpath.
The web Recuerdos de Castaras has a comprehensive article about the oficial spanish leaflet on the Ruta Medieval.
