La Vía Verde del Noroeste of the Region of Murcia makes use of the old railway track between Murcia and Caravaca de la Cruz. Along its way there are plenty of varied sceneries where we can find an important piece of the natural and cultural heritage of the Region of Murcia. There are three natural landscapes included in the Red Natura 2000, a great amount of places catalogued as Bien de Interés Cultural (BIC) and the distinction as historical sites of high cultural value of the historical centre of Caravaca de la Cruz, Cehegín and Mula.
The itinerary offers 78 kms of natural road, where we can enjoy a great variety of landscapes, the charming and kindness of the villages through which the Vía goes by, their traditions, culture and gastronomy. On our way we can find several rest areas and a network of hostels (www.alverdes.es
) where an appropriate service of lodging, catering and touristic activities is provided. The Northwest Vía Verde lets us enjoy a privileged, full of history environment in a respectful way.
