The Way of el Cid Consortium
The Consorcio Camino del Cid -Consortium of the Way of El Cid- is a Spanish non-profit public corporation legally established in 2002 and formed by the Provincial Councils of Burgos, Soria, Guadalajara, Saragossa, Teruel, Castellón, Valencia and Alicante, for the purpose of promoting and disseminating the cultural, tourist and environmental potential of the Way of El Cid and generating new resources for the inhabitants of the regions through which this route passes.
The Way of El Cid is a tourist and cultural route that is based on El Cantar de mio Cid (Song of My Lord), a well-known mediaeval poem in Spanish and European literature written at the end of the 12th century or beginning of the 13th century, that tells of the exile of the knight and King’s Champion Rodrigo Díaz, better known as el Cid Campeador.
The objective of the Consortium is to convert the Way of El Cid into a route of international reference, since it is a source of many essential aspects related to the history, art and cultural diversity of Mediaeval Spain.
