The Al Idrisi route Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Al Idrisi route

Al-Idrisi was a famous geographer and cartographer in the Middle Ages. The accuracy of his geographic description of the world made him famous, and the road that leads from Algeciras to Grenada now bears his name. It runs along the coastline, from Algeciras to the Costa del Sol, passing through Motril and the Costa Tropical, and then it turns North, all the way to Grenada. As in the rest of the area that saw Arab domination, you'll see towers and forts, but you'll also be able to taste all sorts of exotic fruit and even sugar cane, which is grown throughout the region. Visit the Nature Park of los Alcornocales named after the fact that it is home to the largest reserve of cork oak in the world (in Spanish, « alcornoque »).
Marbella stands out among the other towns because of its luxury and glamour. In the summer, many celebrities flock towards this town, drawn by its famous « Puerto Banús ». During this excursion of over 200 mi, you'll be able to visit the small villages of the region, where craft work and local cuisine are the main points of interest.
