The Camino Mozarabe is a pilgrimage route, an alternative to the Camino de Santiago, used by Mozarabs who professed their faith in Islamic territory, in the direction of Santiago de Compostela.

During the tour, along the Camino Mozarabe, you will enjoy the incredible Mediterranean landscape, surrounded by olive groves, dirt tracks, Roman roads and fields of oaks.

You will start in Granada, a city famous for the Alhambra, an Arab fortress of incredible magnitude; and you will end up in Mérida, where the Camino Mozarabe connects with the Vía de la Plata, or enjoy the beauty of this city, declared a World Heritage Site.

    1. I accept the privacy policy.



Granada is a Spanish city, located in the autonomous community of Andalusia. We suggest you visit the Alhambra, stroll through the neighborhoods of Albaicín and Sacromonte, visit other important monuments and enjoy its cuisine and its hammam.


From Granada to Atarfe - 10Km

You will follow the arrows as you leave Granada through the motorway tunnel. You will cross farm fields, until you reach halfway along your route for today, the historic town of Maracena.

From there, you'll have to keep going, along routes with lots of greenery and in the background, the Sierra Nevada mountains, until you reach Atarfe. This town in the province of Granada with 16,000 inhabitants has among its charming places the Tres Juanes Chapel and the Concord Monument.


From Atarfe to Moclín - 21,4km

In order to leave Atarfe, you should take Avenida Aragón. Keep going straight ahead and you will pass close to the Medina Elvira ruins and then the Sierra Elvira Thermal Baths.

Continue walking until you pass through Puente Pinos del Puente, of Arab origin, which gives the town its name. You will continue in a northerly direction, almost in a straight line, until you reach the fertile lands surrounding the town of Olivares. Its name, as could not be otherwise, comes from the immense number of olive groves that surround it.

You will end up in Moclín, where you can enjoy the views of the Sierra Nevada on the horizon.


From Moclín to Alcalá la Real - 22km

We will leave Moclín for the Cuautel de la Benemérita. During this stage, you will alternate your path between road and dirt tracks. You will cross streams and small towns.

The Cave of Malalmuerzo stands out, a treasure of the Paleolithic and the Neolithic that you will surely love. The day ends in Alcalá la Real, which has a great architectural heritage.


From Alcalá la Real to Alcaudete - 23km

Short stage and without major slopes. The path runs along paths, Roman bridges and small villages. Occasionally you will have to travel small stretches by road, we suggest you be careful during this journey. If you have time, you can visit the Sanctuary of the Virgen de la Fuensanta.


From Alcaudete to Baena - 24km

Between Alcaudete and the Cortijo de la Paloma you will have to walk for a few kilometers along the Córdoba road. Soon you will enter dirt tracks and olive trees. You will cross some rivers and bridges and end the day in Baena. If you have time, we suggest you visit its monuments and relax walking through its beautiful streets.


From Baena to Castro del Río - 20km

Short, quiet stage and runs through landscapes and roads, without many intermediate towns. The best reward for this effort is the arrival in the beautiful Cordoba town of Castro del Río.


From Castro del Río to Santa Cruz - 20,3km

You will start the road towards Bujalance, the closest town to Castro del Río. Despite being a long stage, it runs along without any ascents. You will enjoy the views of a beautiful Roman bridge that crosses the Fontalba stream.

Continue your route to Espejo, a city of almost 4,000 inhabitants located in the foothills. If you have time, visit the Gothic-Mudejar Church of San Bartolomé. Both at the entrance and exit of this town, the terrain is mostly arid and very flat.

On your final stretch, you will walk parallel to the Arroyo del Montecillo stream and you will be surrounded by extensive green fields in some areas and arid terrain in others, until you reach Santa Cruz.


From Santa Cruz to Córdoba - 25,8km

When leaving Santa Cruz, you will walk northwest until you join the variant that from Castro del Río that goes in a straight line towards Córdoba. Keep advancing parallel to the N-432 national road until you reach your destination today, Córdoba, one of the main cities in Andalusia.

In Cordoba, located in the famous River Guadalquivir valley, we suggest you visit the Cathedral Mosque of Cordoba, the Alcazar of the Christian Monarchs, and if you feel very tired, enjoy a bath in the best Arab style!


From Córdoba to Cerro Muriano - 15km

Stage characterized by the strong ascent to the "Loma de los Escalones". After the descent, the path is flat, comfortable and wide. You will cross some railroad tracks and after a few kilometers you will reach Cerro Muriano.


From Cerro Muriano to Villaharta - 21km

You will walk through the Guadiato Valley, with vegetation of enzymes and their flocks. You will pass through the Vacar, we recommend you take a break and visit its imposing Arab castle. The last kilometers run through the Sierra Morena until you reach Villaharta with its Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de la Piedad.


From Villaharta to Alcaracejos - 31km

Long stage that combines stretches of road and dirt tracks. You will have to climb and descend constantly, but it will be worth the landscape that combines the beauty of the banks of the Guadalbarbo River with the magnificent presence of oaks and olive groves.


From Alcaracejos to Hinojosa del Duque - 23km

Before starting the camino, you are recommended to visit the Plaza de los Pedroches and the Ermita de San Sebastián. You will pass through small towns, farms, hamlets and pastures. In Fuente la Lancha you can eat and visit the beautiful parish of Santa Catalina. In Hinojosa del Duque you will receive the Fuente del Pilar de los Llanos, a 16th century building.


From Hinojosa del Duque to Monterrubio - 31km

The Camino Mozarábe will lead us to the Zújar River, one of the great tributaries of the Guadiana. After crossing it, you will ascend to the hermitage of the Virgen de Gracia de la Alcantarilla, a construction of great singularity that deserves your visit. During this stage, you will leave Cordoba and Andalusia, to enter Extremadura through the province of Badajoz.


From Monterrubio to Castuera - 19km

The day begins by walking through olive seedling plantations. You will walk on a flat road with very arid and unpopulated terrain around you.

After the asphalt, through an area of houses with small orchards we arrive at Castuera, capital of the La Serena region. Don't forget to try their exquisite nougats!


From Castuera to Campanario 17,7km

When you leave Castuera, along the Santa Ana promenade, you will go along to the Guadalefra stream and then continue walking next to the train tracks. When you get to Quintana de la Serena, turn right. When you cross 'Las Iglesias Caidas', you will then arrive in Campanario.

Once there, we suggest you visit the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, as well as the Nuestra Señora de Piedraescrita and Los Mártires Chapels.


From Campanario to Medellín - 31km

You will leave Campanario on the Camino de Zalamea. It is a lovely route between cereal fields and holm oaks. We recommend stopping at La Haba, tasting its gastronomic delights and exploring its urban center.

The final stretch to Medellín must be done by road. You will finish in the ancient Roman city of Medellín, the birthplace of the conquistador Hernán Cortés.


From Medellín to Mérida - 34km

The last stage runs through dirt tracks, cornfields, rice fields, tomato plantations and small forests. Your Mozárabe Way ends in the beautiful city of Merida.

About the Camino Mozarabe

We want to talk to you in this text about the Camino Mozarabe, one of the most interesting options of all the possibilities on the Camino de Santiago.

In fact, we will tell you about its main characteristics and give you all the necessary information to be able to undertake and enjoy this route. At the same time, we want to remind you that it is possible to do it with Santiago Ways with all our guarantees.

Why choose the Camino Mozarabe?

1.- The Camino Mozarabe is a great challenge: The Camino Mozarabe to Santiago links with the route of the Via de La Plata and gives us the possibility of completing the Camino de Santiago from several cities from Andalucía to Santiago.

In most cases, people finish the tour in the city of Mérida. However, it is possible to complete a challenge as great as travelling practically through all of Spain.

Vista especial en Merida

2.- The historical character of the route: the name of this Camino Mozarabe comes from the pilgrims who, from the south made the pilgrimage to the north. These pilgrims were Mozarabic, Christian people under the Muslim domination of the south of the Iberian Peninsula.

They made the pilgrimage to go to Christian lands, where either they stayed to live or they made petitions to James the Apostle.

3.-The monumental nature of the route: along the course, the Camino Mozarabe gives us the possibility to enjoy imposing natural and architectural environments. However, it is a reason for itself to make the most of it to visit such emblematic cities as Granada, Córdoba or Mérida itself.

4.- A journey through the history of Spain: At the beginning of what was the last bastion of Muslim domination and ending in one of the main cities of Catholicism (Santiago de Compostela), we will be able to take an impressive tour through all the cultural richness of Spain and experience all the contrasts of such a vast historical background.

Catedral de Santiago de Compostela

The same happens if the pilgrim decides to finish his route in Mérida, which was also an important city of the Roman era.

5.-It is a road without overcrowding: one of the main reasons why people choose the Camino Mozarabe is because it has very few pilgrims.

That is, despite having one of the best infrastructures, the Camino de Santiago Mozarabe is a route that does not have too many pilgrims and in which questions such as accommodation or facilities to find a place to eat are very present.

All this, of course, with Santiago Ways is guaranteed from the beginning and, in addition, in the best possible environment.

Information about the Camino de Santiago Mozarabe

The Camino Mozarabe is a route that starts in the south of Spain with three possible itineraries starting from three cities: Córdoba, Granada and Almería.

It has (depending on the journey) a total distance of about 385km. Throughout its entire route, we can find impressive monumental structures as well as beautiful natural landscapes.

We will talk to you later about them in the places of interest. The route of the Camino Mozarabe aims to recreate the ancient pilgrimages that believers of the old Al-Andalus made.

Historia de Al Andalus

It runs through the cities of Granada (from where it begins), Malaga, Jaén and Córdoba. On it, we will go through a fundamentally Mediterranean landscape although we can extend the contrast with the Atlantic if we continue our route along the Via de La Plata.

The quietest routes of the Camino Mozarabe

In the case of completing the route with Santiago Ways, we offer you the alternative of the Camino Mozarabe that goes from Granada to Mérida, where it connects to the Vía de la Plata.

It has a total length of 385 kilometres spread over 15 nights and 16 days. It is possible to book all year round with Santiago Ways and complete it with the option of breakfast or the option of breakfast and dinner.

The route has several stages that we will detail later. It is a road that is perfectly possible to do by bicycle, so we have also detailed what are the stages that exist in that case.

How long does the Camino Mozarabe de Santiago take?

To know how long it takes to complete the Camino Mozarabe, it is best to look at the criteria that we have established in Santiago Ways. In them, we believe that the estimated time to complete the Camino Mozarabe is 15 nights and 16 days.

However, this duration can change depending on various aspects. One of them is the climatology, another is the different rhythm that you propose to complete. Finally, it is the intention of wanting to enjoy more time in a particular landscape. In any case, the most important thing is to enjoy the experience and do it as you prefer.

The best time to make the Camino Mozarabe to Santiago de Compostela

To know when to complete the Camino Mozarabe we want to offer you some tips. They will deal with the most favourable points of each season and, at the same time, their disadvantages. We anticipate that each of the seasons can give some special point to the completion of the Camino Mozarabe de Santiago.

That is why, ultimately, it all depends on the choice of each pilgrim. That is why we have made a list of the different seasons and the advantages and disadvantages that each of them has when making the Camino Mozarabe to Santiago. We hope that it will help you to be able to choose with the best guarantees the optimal time for you.


During the spring, the main problem is unstable weather. In fact, during this intermediate period, rains or sudden storms may appear. However, in the case of the Camino de Santiago Mozarabe, this problem is lessened by the nature of the climate in the south of the Iberian Peninsula.

So, in effect, we will enjoy rather mild and pleasant weather that will accompany us along our entire journey.

Yes, we would have to also monitor the subject of possible allergies. Apart from these two problems that are lessened with correct planning, the spring is an excellent time to make the pilgrimage of the Camino Mozarabe. So much so that the fields we cross will have an incomparable beauty during this time of year.

Camino Mozarabe por Malaga


Summer is the most popular time to complete the Camino de Santiago in general and the Camino Mozarabe de Santiago in particular. It is because it is the time when people have more days available.

In addition, it is the one that has more hours of daylight and is when the weather is stable, although the truth is that in the south of Spain it can be quite hot. Either way, as we go further north, temperatures will be milder.

If we are encouraged to continue along the following routes such as the Camino Portugues coastal route or the Camino Frances itself, we will escape the heat on our pilgrimage.

One of the main drawbacks of making the Camino de Santiago Mozarabe in the summer is the question of accommodation. However, with Santiago Ways, it is possible to forget about this problem because we guarantee that you will be able to rest in the best hostels and rural houses, with excellent care and an unbeatable environment in all of them.


Autumn is also another of the most popular times to complete the Camino de Santiago from Granada. It is because the landscape becomes more beautiful and the cold and heat give us a break during this period in the south of Spain.

Therefore, one of the greatest advantages has to do with the mildness of the temperatures and the beauty of the landscapes that exist. Instability can be against us as it happens in spring.

However, this should not be a special problem whenever we make sure to have good planning as we offer in Santiago Ways.


Although on most of the routes of the Camino de Santiago it is a risk to undertake them during the winter, in the case of the Camino Mozarabe there is no problem: the temperatures will be of course milder than in the north of Spain where, in many sections, we'll go through mountain climates.

So, winter, in the case of the Camino Mozarabe it's not a great problem. Rainfall may increase although we can always avoid its consequences with adequate protection.

Origin of the Camino Mozarabe

As we have said, the origin of the Camino Mozarabe can be traced back to the medieval pilgrimages that many people did to the city of Santiago. However, confirmation of the first pilgrim can be found in the year 1612, when the Canon of the Cathedral of Cordoba began the pilgrimage.

From that moment on, more and more pilgrims joined in. We know that the route was also used in opposite direction in a rather tragic and unfortunate way by Almanzor, the greatest Muslim conqueror who arrived, in fact, to the city of Santiago, where he stripped the bells from the cathedral.

This was our first time in Spain and first time walking on a daily basis. Santiago Ways answered our many questions and concerns over many emails. We started our walk September 1st 2019 in Sarria and took 10 days to walk to Santiago de Compostela. Santiago Ways booked our lodging in 10 different places along with luggage transfers. We asked that all breakfasts,dinner and picnic lunch be included. Our accommodations varied from Albergues. Inns, Boutique hotel, to Bed and Breakfast. We truly enjoyed our picnic lunch as we could stop anywhere and enjoy the view. The accommodations - private room and private bathroom as we requested were not disappointing. We would recommend Santiago Way to anyone that needs some assistance in walking The Way.

I changed my itinerary about 10 times before finalizing my vacation, 2 weeks prior to my trip date. Santiago Ways (Sara Mateo) was so polite and understanding throughout the entire process. My wife and I loved our great 2 week walk on the Camino. Every reservation, baggage transfer, excursion and transportation worked out exactly as planned. Thank you Sara for our memorable vacation.

I have walked with Santiago Ways twice and have been impressed by their professionalism and services both times. I wanted to support a Spanish company for the walks, and found them to be a competitive option - in a crowded industry. Am planning to walk with them again as I’ve enjoyed my caminos so much!

We recently walked part of the Camino de Santiago Trail. Our trip was arranged by Santiago Ways. We were part of a larger group we had a tour guide and our luggage was transferred each day. Our trip was an immense success, everything went very smoothly and that in part was down to Veronica who arranged the trip. She was very helpful throughout the whole planning procedure even arranging for a private transfer from the airport to Sarria, our start point. I would recommend Santiago Ways and Veronica and would definitely use them again.

After comparing several agencies, our group of 7 decided to go with Santiago Ways for our first Camino experience as they offered an all round better price for our customised package that included insurance, meals, accommodation, luggage transfers and any required transportation to accommodation. The booking process was straightforward, they responded quickly to various enquiries and changes that we requested and they provided guidance on preparation and the Camino route which we referred to throughout our trip.We had a couple of issues including one of our group injuring her ankle but Santiago Ways were available 24 x 7 and they resolved everything efficiently including all communications required with local accommodation providers, taxis etc. which was very reassuring. Pilgrims we met who organised their accommodation en route had to deal with lack of accommodation in some locations and then they had to organise transport to and from the nearest hostels. We didn’t have any stress like this at all which left us free to enjoy the stunning scenery and great camaraderie on this wonderful trip. We will use Santiago Ways again and we can highly recommend them.

I booked my Camino de Santiago for Sept 2019 through Santiago Ways and the company made the experience absolutely wonderful. Vanessa Veiga was a pleasure to deal with, very professional and informative and made it very easy to arrange the entire trip. The accommodations and board booked through Santiago ways were amazing, we were very pleased with the diversity (B&B, hotel, hostel) of the accommodations along with the service and cleanliness of the accommodations. The luggage transfer worked flawlessly. I would rate Santiago Ways 10 out of 10 and recommend them to anyone looking to book their Camino.

I was so pleased with the trip Santiago Ways set up for me to Walk The Camino Francés. My first experience was when I requested a quote in October 2018 for a August 2019 walk. Ylenia went above and beyond to answer all our questions and to provide numerous options for me before I made my final decision on the trip. She was patient and thorough as I gathered information. Her follow up was amazing and her attention to detail was very assuring! Once I booked the trip she continued sending updates until we departed for Spain. Once we arrived in Spain Ylenia and the Operations team stayed in touch via email to answer any questions. The hotel accommodations for 39 days were all wonderful and the baggage transfer was perfect. Every day our bags were at the hotel by the time we arrived. One day my friend left her hat in the hotel room and Santiago Ways Operation team sent an email saying the hat would be waiting at our next hotel. That’s going “above and beyond”. I highly recommend using Santiago Ways for your Camino!!!!! We walked with numerous people who had used other companies and they all thought Santiago Ways had the best hotels. I’ve already referred a friend to them and definitely will use them for my next Camino. Thank you Santiago Ways!!!!!!!!

Celebrating 60th birthday, we walked 100 kilos for 10 days. No pain and no blisters. Santiago ways transported our luggage on time every day even we changed one of the hotel to Paradores. Taxis were always on time waiting for us. All hotels were clean, friendly and conveniently located. The food and buildings and history of each accommodations were all unique and wonderful! I will use Santiago ways for my next Camino. Andriana was very helpful. Thank you! Muchas Gracias!

We booked our "Camino" trip via this agency. Our agent was Vanessa and we are ecstatic with the service! The booking went very smoothly. All our questions were answered and all our wished addressed in a very quick manner. Actually, the agency had to ping us a few times via email and WhatsApp, as we were the ones too slow to answer them. They even made arrangements for us to take our dog on the trip and book the appropriate hotels. The luggage transfer was wonderful. We had a pickup from Santiago to our starting point on "Camino" that also worked perfectly. We can highly recommend the services of this agency. I have to admit that I have not compared prices and if there is something cheaper on the market, but the service we received here was impeccable. We had a wonderful trip and are planing to come back next year and walk another "Camino" again. Buen Camino everyone!

Walking the Camino was the best experience of my life! Partially because I had such a great support crew of Santiago Ways! I worked with Vanessa Veiga who organized my trip to suit my needs. When some details needed to be changed, she kindly worked with me to make it happen. My accommodations were all very different- from Casa Rurals to hostels to Pensions, but they were all excellent. The luggage transfer worked perfectly, too. I highly recommend this company to anyone planning to walk the Camino!

I used Santiago Ways on my first Camino in March this year. The trail that I did was from Vigo to Santiago de Compostela. The experience was truly fantastic ….. mainly because of Santiago Ways.My contact person at Santiago Ways was Vanessa Veiga. Right from the onset Vanessa was extremely helpful , sensitive and very attentive to all my requests. She responded swiftly to all my mails. She selected the right hotels which were excellent and the luggage always arrived on time.I am planning my second Camino next April and I would continue to use Santiago Ways and in particular Vanessa. Thanks a million Vanessa and continue the good work to all the pilgrims who want to experience a true Camino.Winston FernandezKuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Santiago Ways made it possible for me to do the pilgrimage. At 69 I did not like the idea of staying in a hostal, I like a bit of privacy and comfort! And I could not have done the walking while carrying my luggage. Adriana at Santiago Ways helped me work out my route and booked hotels and luggage transfers. Also, having them there in case I had any problems, was very reassuring. Adriana was only a phone call away. I recommend using Santiago Ways for anyone having doubts about doing the pilgrimage - they make it so much easier!

Vanessa was awesome and we loved Santiago Ways! We had a group of 8 college friends that were all around 50-years old. The deciding factor in choosing Santiago Ways was the group discount offered for groups of 6 or more. All other companies threshold for a discount was 10 people. Vanessa and the staff were awesome to work with throughout the process. We did the five day hike from Sarria to Santiago. We requested superior accommodations in places that were on the trail. The accommodations were top notch and 4 of the 5 places were directly on the trail. The exception was our night in Lavacolla in which we were .4 miles off the trail. It was our choice to stay in that location in order to have a shorter walk to Santiago on our final day so we could make the noon mass. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean each place was and they all had great bar and restaurant choices in close proximity - with the exception of Lavacolla so we recommend eating on-site - it was very good.

My family and I used Santiago Ways to organize our recent pilgrimage from Lisbon to Porto. They did an excellent job booking us (as much as possible) into wonderful, small, family-run hotels and coping with the many changes dictated by "group" travel. In addition, one of us was traveling by bicycle whilst the rest were walking, necessitating even more planning which Santiago Ways did with patience and grace. We recommend using Santiago Ways for Camino support and planning!!! Jan Schubert

My family and I (6 of us) just finished walking the Lisbon to Porto section of the Camino Portuguese. It was a wonderful experience for us. The hotels we were booked into were well chosen and the food was great. We also found the path to be well marked making way finding fairly easy. A great relief as we had heard it was not well marked.

Santiago Ways made my memorable hike trouble-free. I had excellent hotels, tasty breakfasts, dependable baggage forwarding, informative advance information, and a dependable drive to deliver me to Sarria. I really appreciate their attention to detail!

We booked our El Camino with Santiago Ways and we were very lucky to have Silvia as our agent. She did a fantastic job organizing our trip, always promptly responding to our inquiries, impeccable English, all accommodations that she arranged for us were great, and our luggage was always delivered to the next location timely, before our arrivals to sites. I would definitely recommend Santiago Ways and ask for Silvia to be your representative.

This trip changed my life in ways I could not describe! I knew the hiking was going to be a challenge, but Santiago Ways made it so easy to plan and execute. They are truly the best and I am already planning my next trip with Santiago Ways and would not think of going anywhere else. Silvia Rivera was particularly helpful in the planning, as she answered all my questions patiently, and help me through the process. Great job, Guys, and I will see you next year!

Have just finished El Camino de Santiago from Sarria with the help of Santiago Ways. They have been extremely accesible from day one. The transfer of the luggage throught the five days was impecable, always finding the luggage in the room on every stage of the way. The food and lodging was very acceptable. If I were to do it again I would not hesitate to contact them once more for their assistance! "Buen camino".

Simply put - an incredible experience! This agency looks after every last detail. I walked the last 100 km of the Camino with their help and I definitely want to go back soon and do a longer part of the route. When that happens (which I hope is soon) I'll definitely be using Santiago Ways again! Thanks for everything.
