The tour leads you through the lowlands of the Guadalquivier river to Sierra Morena. Countless fantastic roads await you in this varied mountain and hilly landscape.

You stop in Merida, the Roman capital of Lusitania founded by Emperor Augustus 2000 years ago.

This morning you cruise through Sierra de Fuentes to get to Cáceres. Cáceres boasts a very well preserved historic center and numerous palaces from the XIV century. For many it is even the most beautiful city in Spain and indeed the flair of this city is unique. Cáceres is a place where you could stay even longer, but there are still many beautiful things to discover, such as Monfragüe Nature Park on the way to Guadalupe. The natural park was already protected in 1979 and is home to one of the largest and most representative Mediterranean forest areas. On the cliffs are impressive breeding colonies of griffon vultures, here also nest peregrine falcons, Bonelli's eagles and eagle owls.

You leave Plasencia and the Silver Route, as your motorcycle smells mountain air today. You will ride up to the motorcycling paradise of the Sierra de Gredos mountains,  where you will enjoy unique views of the Almanzor peak with its almost 2600 meters. The roads in this mountainous region seem to be made for motorcycling and you spend a perfect day of riding before setting up your evening quarters in Guadalupe.
