‘What have the Romans ever done for us?’ scoffs John Cleese in the Monty Python sketch. Plenty, discover Paul and son Joseph, who cycle from Cadiz to Santiago along the Roman Via Augusta and Via de la Plata.
They marvel at the Roman remains in Seville, Merida and Caceres, ask themselves why Bobby Charlton’s name is next to Spain’s greatest bullfighter and classical guitarist in a Jerez sherry cellar and why General Franco has disappeared from Plaza Mayor in Salamanca.
Join them as they uncover fascinating bits of history along this little-known route through Spain.
