Looking at gronze.com it looks like there are long gaps in accommodation at the moment. I don't mind a 30-35km walk but doing a marathon each day might be a little much. Has anyone done this route recently and can confirm the state and distance between accommodations and places to eat along this way? Thanks.

hi. I did the Granada-Cordoba part in november of 2019 and it was a very solitary affair, which was not a bad thing perse but I had hoped to meet some fellow travellers. I was happy I had booked ahead as most opened just for me. Prepare for cold rooms, bare bones breakfast and limited options for lunch on the way. I managed to find restaurants for the evening easily enough though. I would bring my puffer and a sleeping bag were I to do it again this late in the year. It was cold and rainy and without heating at night it became a bit miserable.

Enjoy, it's beautiful out there!

Sounds like a challenge but maybe a good first leg for my month on the Camino. How did you get to Granada? I can get to Malaga from London for $18... How many days/stages did you do?

I can’t help you with the route; but I’m in Malaga same time as you; brushing up my Spanish on a week’s immersion course at the instituto Picasso.

I recommend the Antigua Casa de Guarda for drinks and Bodega Pimpi (go inside it’s very traditional) for more drinks and real Andalusian food.

Thanks for the recommendations. I could spend a few days there exploring before heading out to another Camino if this one doesn't work out. Can you recommend a hostel or a decent place to stay? Is there a bus or shuttle from the airport to downtown Malaga? I have research fatigue trying to figure out which camino to do.

That’s a great site. Thanks. I’ll stop asking how to get somewhere.

I'm doing the walk Malaga to Cordoba in October, I'll let you know, what to expect when it comes to lodging. Last year KayVee did the walk, have a look at her blog! It is very useful!
I'm doing the walk by myself, I expect it to be lonely, I expect the Spanish to smile at my Duolingo-Spanish, I expect it to be wonderful (and difficult at times) and I know from past experiences, when I go home, I want to do it all over.

From the airport there is a direct underground train line which gets you into the centre of town very quickly. It runs every 10-15 minutes and costs about €5. It’s excellent. It stops at the main train station (Maria Zambrana?) then continues to the centre.

I can’t really help with accommodation - I’m staying in the Alcazaba; but that’s about £60/night.

If you’ve time a walk east along the seafront for a couple of KM gets you to some very good, local and inexpensive cafes and restaurants in Pedregalejo. (Spelling?). El Zagal is a favourite.

Hi, I took the high speed train for the long distances in Spain (Barcelona-Granada, Cordoba-Malaga and Malaga-Barcelona). Very efficient. For the rest I took the bus, there's long distance buses that are great.

My stages were:
2 days in Granada
Granada - Pinos Puente - Moclin - Alcala la Real - Alcaudate - Baena - Castro del Rio - Cordoba
1 day in Cordoba
(and after a few day at a beach near malaga)

I walked a very few stages of it a couple of years ago.
It was pretty rainy so I jumped up onto the Madrid route.
It's one of those I plan on going back and finishing someday in better weather and when I don't have a group waiting. Honestly, I got a bit bored with the scenery - more olive trees than I've seen in my life -

Here is a link to my blog if it helps:

Did you decide you'll give this route a go in the end? I'm also considering this at the start of November, wondered where your research led you, if anywhere?

I have 30 days and I’ve decided that doing one continuous walk to Santiago interests me more at the moment. I arrive in Madrid on November 2nd and will either do the Madrid route or bus to Pamplona and do the French route. Interested in the Madrid at all? I arrive at 1:15pm and will likely start walking that day if I choose Madrid.
