The Guadix-Almendricos railway line (Granada-Murcia) was built to give a rapid outlet to the ore that housed the area. Its exploitation began between 1906 and 1907 by several companies with English capital, until at the end of the last century it passed into the hands of the Spanish capital. Disused since 1985, now it will become an itinerary of great accessibility and safety for all types of users, with no age limit or physical capacity.
The Almanzora Greenway runs along part of the disused Guadix-Almendricos railway line, in the section that runs between the provincial limit of Granada-Almería and the municipal district of Huércal-Overa. The final length of this section of Vía Verde del Almanzora will be approximately 35 km.
The municipalities of Serón, Fines, Cantoria and Olula del Río have carried out refurbishment projects in the sections of this same line that runs through their municipal boundaries. In this way, it is intended to complete a large greenway in the Almanzora Valley, with the idea of creating an ideal road for cycling and walking, suitable for all types of users, including those with reduced mobility.Más información
