Route of the Caliphate

 This route unites the capitals of Al-Andalus, Califal and Nazarí, and is the one which , according to al-Idrisi, was followed in the 12th century between Córdoba and Granada. The territory along which the Route of the Caliphate travels once separated christendom from the muslim world at the end of the Middle Ages in Spain. King Alfonso XI conceded the “royal” title to Alcalá la Real, which he considered “the key, the guard and the defender of the Castillian Kings”
