A different way of sightseeing
Baena offers multiple possibilities in full contact with nature
By cycling through the Vía Verde, rowing in the Guadajoz, fishing in the Vadomojón reservoir or walking the Mozarabic Way of Santiago, the town and its surroundings can be discovered in an original way in what would be a unique experience.
Different options for the most intrepid travelers
Few places in the province of Córdoba offer the possibility of getting to know them while practicing active tourism or, simply, allowing you to enjoy a stay while activities are carried out in the middle of nature. Baena is one of them and, perhaps because of this circumstance, the IES “Luis Carrillo de Sotomayor”, one of the local secondary schools, teaches the cycles of Technician in Conducting Physical and Sports Activities in the Natural Environment and Superior Technician in Animation of Physical and Sports Activities.
The commissioning of the Vadomojón reservoir , next to the Albendín district, expanded an offer where the possibility of kayaking across the Guadajoz River had even been explored . From that moment on, new options arose such as sport fishing, which attracts visitors from all over Andalusia, with many also using the jetty installed there to moor small recreational boats in which to take a walk at sunset and even practice water skiing in the case of the most intrepid.
On the other hand, the Vía Verde del Guadajoz , allows you to take tours on foot or by bicycle, as well as the Mozarabic Way of Santiago , a true melting pot of history, art and nature.
