With one night in the Old Royal Tin Factory, converted into a organic Winery, where a historical visit, wine tasting, a delicious dinner and a bed to rest, await us. An extraordinary unique experience.

The next day, after breakfast, we continue our route with new energy.

It is not a very difficult route technically, but it has its little challenges.

Day 1

Juzcar, pueblo azul

From Cartajima to Juzcar, Faraján and to the Old Royal Tin Factory

Our route begins in the picturesque village of Cartajima towards Juzcar, the famous Blue village. We visit this curious place and after having a coffee, we continue our route to Faraján. Whoever wants can go down with me to the waterfalls "Chorreras de Balastar", or optional stay in town to take a break.


We have some tapas in the village and continue our route to the Old Royal Tin Factory next to the Genal River. A historical visit awaits us that will reveal all the secrets of this wonderful and mysterious place, as well as a tasting of the estate's own wines and a delicious dinner.
