This ancient route, also known as the Camino Real, united Granada with Almería through the inland villages, skirting the mountain massif. It used to be a well-travelled communicating road in the times of al-Andalus. It is named after the explorer Jerónimo Münzer.
Numerous remains of the Moorish defensive system can be seen along the route, such as the alcazaba or fortress of Almería and another in Cenete. Arab baths are preserved in Aldeira, Dólar, Ferreira…, the most impressive being the thermal baths of Graena, which go back to the 12th century.
