IAT Spain Releases Slideshow Presentation
Sendero Internacional de los Apalaches has recently released a slideshow presentation highlighting the IAT route in west central Spain, where "Las Villuercas-Ibores-Jara is the best place in Europe to admire the Appalachians Mountains."
In this region of Spain, IAT hikers can walk from one village to another, and overnight in a hostel or rural guesthouse. In villages where there is no tourist accommodations, walkers are permitted to spend the night in a gymnasium or other public building.
Once the Las Villuercas-Ibores-Jara section of IAT Spain is completed, the route will extend north to connect with Portugal, and south to connect to Ciudad Real and Córdoba.
The IAT in Spain utilizes existing trails and walking routes, some of which date back to Roman times.
Already 100 kms of the Villuercas region has been marked with gps, accounting for nearly half of the trail length in this area. The distance between villages is between 10 km and 25 km.
When complete, IAT Spain will extend approximately 900 kms.
