Mountain Bike Trail (MB) in this Area 6th Stage: Villanueva de Algaidas - Archidona

This trail that connects the area of the Northern Málaga Mountains and the north of this province and Córdoba has a few-millennium-long history, as it used to be an old Roman road which has been turned into a modern road that follows the same route. This ways witnessed the past and Roman glory, which can today be seen thanks to only few left paved sections of the cobbled road and the milestones which mark the distance of thousand steps between each one of them.
