The AP-7 toll motorway is, without a doubt, one of the most important thoroughfares on the Iberian Peninsula. It is also called the Autopista del Mediterráneo (Mediterrenean Toll Motorway) as it runs parallel to the sea, and it is also designated as the European route E15. The toll motorway begins in the province of Girona, beside the border with France, and subsequently crosses the provinces of Barcelona, Tarragona, Castellón, Valencia, Alicante, Murcia and Almería (without including another stretch in Málaga, with which a direct connection remains to be established). In total, it runs more than 1,100 km, connecting the entire east coast of Spain.
This is why hotels along the AP-7 are highly sought-after by all types of travellers: from groups that are just passing through to people who wish to visit Barcelona but who shun the hustle and bustle of the big city, including couriers and businesspeople going to Barcelona or any other town in the Vallés Oriental.
