Mountain Bike Trail (MB) to Farmhouses (Villanueva de Algaidas)

Active Tourism Activities > Mountain Bike

Villanueva de Algaidas is a village in Archidona, which was separated from the latter one in 1843. It was creeated during the building of the Franciscan monastery of Nuestra Señora de la Consolación de las Algaidas in the 16th century.  This religious order was responsible for making many of the farmhouses and farmsteads (cortijada) in the area which later formed the village of Villanueva de Algaidas. This circular route in the town of Algaidas will take you to see these old traditional Andalusian houses and farms.
