Climb Description

Puerto del Zamorano is a gentle climb in the southern part of the Sevilla region of Andalucia. Situated in the Sierra de Tablón mountains, it offers views of the large Sierra de Grazalema range in the distance.

The climbs from the Guadamanil River is the toughest of the three main sides; with the average gradient hiding a short downhill section. Nevertheless, there is nothing too challenging here, and the average cyclist would be wise to include this as part of a longer route, rather than as a standalone climb.

Puerto del Zamorano is open throughout the year.
