This quirky addition, is just one of many which adds to the homely feel of these properties. Breakfast or breakfast starter pack is included within your accommodation.

Food

walkers mealsYou will discover that the cuisine of Andalucia is simple and tasty, making use of what is seasonal and locally available. Desayuno, or breakfast, is a laid back, buffet style affair of tostado y tomate (toast and tomato), jamon, olive oil and a strong black coffee on the side. Indeed, locally baked bread, olive oil and tomatoes are a staple of every meal in Andalucia and you're likely to see the Moclin bread deliveries being made daily while you are out walking through local villages.
Ultra Trail Spain provides you with a picnic lunch during each day's walk served al fresco, with tasty bocadillos – filled crusty rolls – and a selection of seasonal salads and fruits. Lunch is freshly prepared each day with a selection of fillings to choose from each day. There's plenty of sheep and goats' cheeses, as well as chorizo and mortadella-type sausages. We also stop regularly during our walks to top up water as required.
Your evening meals will be taken in local, authentic bars. Specialities of course include the traditional Spanish dishes of tortilla, paella and patatas a lo pobre but Andalucian cuisine also includes gambas pil pil – prawns sizzled in garlic and chilli and berenjamas con miel de cana. The latter a dish of deep fried aubergines drenched in mollasses and served locally as an appetizer.
Your evening meals also include a soft drink, glass of wine or beer. Please advise of any special dietary requirements at time of booking.

Typical itinerary

Day 1 – Welcome to Moclin

Arrive at Malaga or Granada airport. Transfer to Moclín. Depending on arrival time there will be a light lunch. Opportunity to wander around the historic town and castle and sample the views. Welcome dinner of typical Andalucian fare in village bar.

Day 2 - Discover Moclin

Walk in the local area, around 14km in length, with an opportunity to find out about the history and culture of this famous area from 360 degrees. We'll climb along a ridgeway to look across at the town, before we descend into the local gorge and follow the Rio Velillos. We'll then find our way back up to Moclín, enjoying regular stops to enjoy the views over Granada and the Sierra Nevada behind. Dinner at village bar.

Day 3 – The tour of the Atalyayas

Moclín's famous watchtowers are a central theme for today's walk of around 9km, as we keep them in view finding our way through what seems like a sea of olive groves and our final destination of Tozer, home to an important Arab cemetery and recent archaeological investigations. Dinner at village bar.

Day 4 – A tale of two castles

Setting out from the village of Mures, we'll head out on a walk of around 12km on what must have once been a well traversed route between Moclín and Alcala la Real castles. With tantalizing glimpses of the town of Alcala we'll reach our destination in time for a late lunch and the opportunity for you to visit the castle or enjoy free time around the town. Free evening.

Day 5 – Rest day
