Here local culture is king and each region has its own traditions that are very much alive. When travelling up the coast, it is not only the landscapes that change but also the dishes, drinks, festivals and even the language. EuroVelo 8 will bring you through the most emblematic parts of Spain. Andalucía, in the south, is the home of Flamenco; the region of Murcia is the beating heart of Spain’s agriculture; Valencia is the home of Paella and Cataluna has world-famous cityscapes.
The route is currently not fully realised. In the future, it will pass from the french border to Cadiz, passing through the mediterranean coast. Since march 2013 the Pirinexus route is open, including the initial part of Eurovelo8 from the border to Sant Feliu de Guíxols.
