Cycling through Gredos and La Vera Route

3-Night Itinerary

West of Madrid you have some beautiful natural areas as well excellent cycling terrain so Paradors have designed a route including fantastic mountain biking opportunities.

Suggested access airports: Madrid

Parador de Oropesa - Night 1

Now there is a chance to discover La Mancha, land of the plains, land of medieval knights and feudal lords. The route starts in Oropesa, where we can explore the 16th century Jesuit School, Nuestra Señora de la Asunción Church (15th century), and the New Palace (15th century), not forgetting the splendid 14th century historic Parador.

Parador de Gredos - Night 2

This is a trip on which to enjoy a few days of nature, history and, of course, cycling. The Gredos landscape is an immense granite mass, a natural space considered to be the backbone of the Iberian Peninsula. From a nature-lover’s point of view, the entire area has become the most valuable section of the entire Central Mountain Range (Sistema Central). The towns enclosed by the mountains are scattered along the slopes and valleys, and have preserved their typical architecture and rural traditions. The Parador can offer you information on the many routes available, either on foot, horseback or mountain bike, to enjoy the mountains and all their natural beauty. On one of these excursions, you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Spanish ibex (cabra hispánica).

Parador de Jarandilla de la Vera - Night 3

The impressive Parador de Jarandilla is a perfect starting point for visits to places such as Yuste Monastery, where Emperor Carlos V spent his last days. Other interesting visits include natural sites such as the Olla Gorge. We also recommend the towns of the Vera region, especially Valverde and Villanueva.
