Around this town in Salamanca there are several routes that will delight mountain bike lovers
If you are a mountain bike lover, we have no doubt that your destination is Alaraz. A place where you can enjoy routes to squeeze your bike while you enjoy trails and paths where you will be the king or queen.
Emperor Charles V passed through Alaraz on his way to the Monastery of Yuste. According to the chronicles, on 8 November he set off from Peñaranda de Bracamonte in the direction of Alaraz. Once there, he heard mass, spent the night in the town and the following day continued on his way to Yuste. These were roads along which the emperor travelled on a litter pulled by mules.
Five centuries later, these same paths are now travelled by many mountain bike enthusiasts. Alaraz has become a paradise for lovers of this sport. So much so, in fact, that every year it hosts an event – or event – that brings together hundreds of mountain bikers. All this as a result of its commitment to sustainable and sustained tourism that, among other things, avoids depopulation.
