the snack shop this way, the way that has been built on the old train
linking Marchena and Córdoba. Road used by both cyclists and walkers,
nature lovers and a clear path as smoke and beautiful green landscape
of spring.

This stage will take us to the slope of the Castillo de Almodovar del Rio, after 42Km route, through the countryside of Cordoba.

Castle in the most pronounced elevation of the region and Iberian origins and subsequent Roman camp being renovated several times, being the most important in 1902 by the Earl of Torralba, D. Rafael Desmaisieres.
The arrival, located along the hillside of the castle, green ground
and covered a multitude of spring flowers, witness the great rise of
two horses that compete for the stage victory, since the arrival today
was a goal, ie the first it reaches the goal is to win, of course, if
