La Vuelta, the Spanish equivalent to the Tour de France, is about to start its 73rd edition on Saturday 25th August. This year, the first 8 stages will take place in Andalusia, kicking off with a time-trial in the streets of Malaga, a perfect chance for the city to show the world its elegant streets, leafy avenues, cultural atmosphere and its great location by the Mediterranean Sea.
It will then move on to Marbella, a favourite when summertime comes. Marbella is a great example of how tradition, luxury, nightlife and relax can all be combined in a successful mix. The end of this stage is one of Andalusia’s gems, El Caminito del Rey, a real must-see for all hiking lovers.
Here, at Meridional Events, we are very proud that La Vuelta has chosen Andalusia to be the starting point for this great event and also for hosting such a large number of stages this year. It will be a great opportunity to discover the different landscapes, cities, towns and all Andalusia has to offer.
