The Camino de los sagrados corporales, from Llutxent to Daroca (Aragon), follows the route set by one of the oldest and most surprising medieval legends in Valencian culture. Based on the miracle of the holy cloths, narrated in a manuscript dated 1340, this path begins at the Monastery of Corpus Christi or of Santo Domingo, and follows the route that a mule, loaded with holy cloths, continued to Daroca, where they are kept today.
The legend hearkens back to Jaime I's conquest of the Kingdom of Valencia, at a time when relic worship was a fundamental pillar to keeping the faith in border regions. This pilgrimage path was recovered in 2008 as a new expression of religious and cultural tourism, in order to contribute to the development of the villages it crosses.
The route is 340 km long, and 190 km cross land in the Region of Valencia, going through interesting cities such as Alzira, Llíria, Olocau, Segorbe, Jérica, Caudiel and Barracas.
The route recalls the tradition of one of the oldest legends kept alive in Valencia.
Cycling the Camino de los Corporales is an extraordinary experience, thanks to the history and immaterial heritage of the Vall d'Albaida
Javier Prats was the first to travel the Camino de los Corporales after it was recovered in 2008. Driven by history and an adventurous spirit, he was only accompanied by a mule and a horse. 340 km, 76 hours walking and 12 days.
