The Greenway of the Noroeste takes us through the old railway line that linked Murcia with Caravaca de la Cruz. Nowadays, it is a long natural path that breathes the pilgrim atmosphere, since Caravaca de la Cruz is one of the most important religious tourism destinations in Spain, where thousands of parishioners gather every year.

During the journey we can see the lush orchards of the fertile plain of Segura, the paths of green pine trees, almond trees and a rich cultural heritage in each town we visit. In addition we will enter the world of wine in Bullas, with Denomination of Origin and spectacular wineries where we will learn everything about the winemaking tradition and taste some of its varieties.
