May 12th: National Day (Spain) of Vías Verdes 2019
The FFE announces the XXI edition of the National Day in Spain of Vías Verdes, next May 12, 2019, extending the celebrations throughout the month.
The Fundación de los Ferrocarriles Españoles (Foundation of the Spanish Railways) has convened the XXI National Day of Vías Verdes to promote the dissemination of these old railway roads, which are currently accessible to nature lovers. It is not about simple paths to walk, because Vías Verdes are full of history and nature. In some cases, the construction works of the railway lines were not finished and, in others, finally were out of service for different reasons. Since 1993, some of these old railway routes have been adapted to be used by cyclists, hikers and people with reduced mobility, since many sections of Vías Verdes are accessible for wheelchairs.
