Yeah, I forgot you Dutch love campings so much . I went to one of them last July and I would say 60% of the people there were Dutch.

And you are right. Between 10 and 20€ is the normal fare there. I paid 12€ and the place was breathtaking. A good and cheap way to park your car as well, since it's not easy in the city center.

http://www.campings.net/ has a large amount of them and it's available in Dutch.

Driving to the cities that you are going to visit may be nice, but driving inside this cities may be a waste of time (in Madrid it's impossible to park, in Toledo you must be an expert to drive there, etc...). I recommend you to leave the car somewhere and then going by metro or cercanías (Madrid) or walking (Toledo).

They are hard to find, but it's possible to get a really cheap night in a hotel in the center of big cities.

I was thinking of a camping somewhere in the suburbs of Madrid, drive to a metrostation, and head with the metro into Madrid. But i also like to scout some of the Autopista's around Madrid

If you are a motorway's tourist I recommend you visiting the south M-30 hahahahaha. I've heard that there is a nice camping in Getafe (I think that is this: http://www.campingalpha.com/b7_en.htm) it's near Madrid (in fact there are metro and cercanías in Getafe).

A really nice trip from the point of view of a motorway fan

A-1 is along with A-6 the best radial motorway and go through some high places, then you try the awesome Madrid network and go East to drive through the new A-66 to reach Sevilla. Then you cross Andalucia at A-92 (the stretch close to Granada is spectacular) and get A-7 to drive most of the Mediterranean coast. Furthermore you go through many diverse landscapes, most of them pretty different from what you can see near the Netherlands.

Really complete. In terms of cities visited I would try to make a small stop in Salamanca and Toledo but you can't see everything . My beloved North-West has some interesting motorways as well (AP-66 is one of the top) but the route is already great as it is.

I see there is a road up to the Mulhacen in the Sierra Nevada. Is traffic allowed there?

Only until you are around 2600m a.s.l. After that, there is a parking and you can only keep going up by bike or on foot. It is said to be the highest road in Europe.

The top of Mulhacen is around 3500m a.s.l.

Bohadilla del Monte isn't a very turistic place... I don't know if you can go by car to the Mulhacén... I think that if the weather is good you won't have problems.

I propose you this for going to Toledo. The motorway from Toledo to the A-5 isn't finished yet but it isn't a very long way. I'he added some points of nice places to visit in your way (I forget some like Ávila and Trujillo)



P.S: You have some toll motorways in your map!

One of the worst parts of the Spanish highways network, hopefully to be removed soon: Despeñaperros narrow pass. Well this is the main linking point b/t South and Central Spain. It´s just shameful.

In this pic we can appreciate one way laying through the bottom close to the railway while the opposite way comes through the upper part of the slop, notice the white lorries.

No estoy seguro, pero por lo que he leído, parece ser que en este tramo las calzadas se separan y esto vendría a ser las obras del viaducto que salva el Genil en la calzada Málaga -> Córdoba. ¿Alguien puede confirmar?




Hay que cruzar la travesía de Encinas reales. El atasco es monumental.

A herd of bulls loose unleashes chaos in the AP-6 in Segovia



Testigos en la zona aseguran que los animales han embestido a los coches. La vía ha estado cortada a la altura de El Espinar


ELPAÍS.com / AGENCIAS - Madrid - 29/03/2008


Un grupo de toros sueltos ha desatado el caos en la autopista AP-6 en la localidad segoviana de El Espinar. La vía, muy transitada el fin de semana por excursionistas procedentes de Madrid, ha sido cortada durante varios minutos en ambos sentidos a la altura del kilómetro 64. Testigos presenciales, en declaraciones al programa Gran Vía de la Cadena SER, han asegurado que los animales han embestido a varios coches.


La Guardia Civil ha recibido un avisó a las 11.30 horas alertando de la presencia de reses bravas en al autopista.

Minutos después, los agentes llegaron al lugar, acordonaron la zona y cortaron la circulación en ese tramo. A las 12.15 horas todavía se encontraban en la vía intentando llevar los toros a su redil, agruparlos y apartarlos de la carretera. Los agentes intentan localizar al dueño de la finca.

La Guardia Civil ha procedido a cortar el tráfico de la autopista, tanto los dos carriles dirección Madrid como los tres en dirección A Coruña, una situación que se ha prolongado durante casi 40 minutos y que ha provocado retenciones y unos cinco kilómetros de atascos en sentido salida, según ha indicado un portavoz de la DGT.

La AP-6 ha vuelto a abrirse al tráfico una vez que la Guardia Civil ha retirado a los toros de la calzada, si bien alrededor del mediodía aún permanecía cortado un carril en sentido A Coruña y se registraban retenciones en esa misma dirección.

"Parecía un encierro", ha declarado un conductor atrapado en el atasco a la Cadena SER. "He visto a un toro embestir a un Ford negro", ha declarado.
