The network of Routes of the Emperor Charles V, as a tourist itinerary integrated in "Cultural Routes of Spain", has signed this morning in FITUR, together with the rest of the routes that make up these routes, a collaboration agreement with the National Geographic Institute (IGN) of Spain and the autonomous National Geographic Information Center (CNIG), both of the Ministry of Fomento, which will allow its integration into the IGN cartography.
This agreement will facilitate the diffusion of the tourist itineraries of these four cultural routes —Route Vía de la Plata, Passion Paths and Paths of Ruprest Art, together with our network of routes— through the collaborative web platform of Nature, Culture and Leisure of the IGN. All those who wish will have at their disposal geolocation tools and dissemination of the different routes and destinations. And everything in a practical and simple way from any website that includes this visualizer.
The four routes, included in the tourist trademark Cultural Routes of Spain promoted by Turespaña, are authentic references of the cultural tourism offer of Spain, and cover practically the entire national territory. Through them, the traveler who visits our country can discover the formidable richness of the cultural and natural heritage of Spain concentrated in these thematic routes.
The first and last travel of Charles V, between Tazones (Villaviciosa, Asturias) and Mojados (Valladolid) in 1517, and between Laredo (Cantabria) and the Monastery of Yuste (Extremadura) between 1556-1557, are the two Carolino routes included in The Routes of the Emperor Charles V. These routes recreate the first trip to Spain of the young Carlos de Habsburgo by lands of Asturias, Cantabria and Castile, in order to take possession of the Hispanic kingdoms inherited from their grandparents, the Catholic Monarchs; as well as the emperor's desire to travel from Brussels towards what would be his final resting place, the Monastery of Yuste, disembarking for this purpose in the port of Laredo.
