This guide proposes an attractive adventure for curious tourists between the key figures of the fabulous “Legacy of Al-Andalus� (Legado Andalusí).

The Route follows the way that Washington Irving, a romantic writer and North American diplomat, did in 1829, fascinated by the wealth and exoticism of the Hispano-Muslim civilization.

The trail lead to a variety of landscapes and through villages and towns full of history, legends, as well as literary references. The road joins the two traditional Andalusias –lowlands and highlands-, the two plains, separated by very uneven terrain.

The road twists and turns between Sevilla and Granada, the two principal points of this romantic tour which, from the beginning of the XIXth century, became the accepted image of Andalusia in Europe, attracting a multitude of artists, writers, dilettantes and all types of travellers.
