A sea of olive trees.

This route runs through the province of Jaén along the old train tracks that took products from this province and from Corboba to the port of Malaga, in particular olive oil, which is why this route was commonly known as the “Tren del Aceite”, or The Oil Train.

The Vía Verde del Aceite is now a new and attractive inland tourism attraction based on the use and  recovery of the infrastructure of the old abandoned Jaén-Campo Real (Cordoba) railway as a green corridor, for cycling, hiking and other nature sports.

Built between 1882 and 1893, this train belonged to the Linares-Puente Genil line, which was dedicated throughout much of the 20th century to transporting different metals from the Jaén mines, and in particular the abundant olive oil, to the port of Malaga and the markets in the south of Spain, which is why it is more commonly know as the Tren del Aceite, or The Oil Train. Technical and trading reasons led to it being shut down in 1971, and it was eventually closed to passenger and goods transportation on the 1st of January 1985.

The entire line, from Jaén to the border, crosses through the towns of Jaén, Torredelcampo, Torredonjimeno, Martos and Alcaudete. It runs through snaking, rolling farmland that forms a landscape of a sea of olive trees dotted with typical Andalusian farmhouses. The presence of the Sierras de Jabalcuz, la Grana, la Caracolera and el Ahillos mountains, very close to the south and the east of the Vía Verde, add diversity to the relief and the landscape.

An endless covering of olive trees, next to nine impressive metal viaducts from the end of the 19th century, are the main trademarks of the 55 km of itinerary in the province of Jaén. In this dotted tapestry, in the Vía Verde del Aceite, you can enjoy a land of attractive countryside and the legacy of a rich history. The extension of this route through the neighbouring regions of Córdoba, through the “Vía Verde d la Subbética”, completes an incredible 112 km of Vía Verde.
