My girlfriend and me will spend some months cycling Spain and Portugal.
Any info is welcome of course, but I have some specific questions, and I know there are some active members from Spain here
-Of course I have heard about the ancient pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostella. What about cycling on this routes? Do we share the path with walkers? Is this allowed? I am not only thinking about the famous routes from France, but also the others.
-I heard about old roman roads and old railways in Spain that are now used for cycling. Does anyone know where to find more info about this?
-Any hidden gems, like ancient cities, remote mountain areas with high passes, National Parks, quiet roads, etc?
-We know nothing about Portugal, except the names of some cities and the Algarve. What are the main attractions for cyclists that love nature and peace? I heard there is a route to Santiago through Portugal as well, Cyclable?
Thanks in advance for any info.
