Two great roads for getting from Santander to Med coast are the N232 to Vinaros and the N234 to Sagunt.
The latter hits the coast just above Valencia, giving a nice coastal run down to Benissa.

The N-232 is a highway in Spain. It broadly follows the Rio Ebro from Logroño to the coast. It starts south east of Logroño at the Autovía LO-20 and runs parallel to the Autopista AP-68. The road passes Calahorra before it junctions with the N-113, N-121 and Autovía A-15.

The road passes Tudela and thereafter has been upgraded to Autovía status. 30 km to the south east is a junction with the N-122. The road then enters Zaragoza. There are also junctions with the N-330 and Autovía A-2 or Autovía A-23.

The road then continues south east between the Rio Ebro and the Imperial Channel of Aragon. The AVE also crosses the road. The road leaves the valley to the south, passing Iberian ruins and the Momumento al Tambor before reaching Alcañiz. Here it crosses the N-211 and Rio Guadalope. The N-420 continues north east, passing over the Coll del Moro to Tarragona.

The N-232 itself heads south through the mountains of El Maestrat. The road is at parts narrow and dangerous.[1] It passes the Hermitage de la Consolación before the Port Torre Miró (1,259m). The road turns east after the town of Morella, going into the Serra de Vallivana and Serra del Turmell over the Port de Querol. The road follows the valley of the Rambla de Cervera and ends at the N-340 at Vinaròs 15 km north of Peníscola.


The N-234 is a highway in Spain. It connects Sagunto to Burgos across the Iberian System.[1]

The road starts 9 km south of Burgos on the Autovía A-1. It heads south east through the Sierra de las Mamblas rising over the Mazariegos (1,060m) and pass Muela (1,374m). It continues through the mountains tom Soria passing over the Puerto Mojón Pardo (1,234m) with the Reserva Nacional de Urbión in the Sierra de Urbión to the north rising to 2,229m. This range is also the source of the Duero River.

At Soria the road meets the N-111 and N-122. The road continues south east into the Sierra de la Virgen and the Puerto Bigornia (1,100m). At Calatayud there is a junction with the Autovía A-2. The road follows the Jiloca River to Daroca and a junction with the N-330 crossing the Puerto de Villafeliche (860m).

The road continues along the rio Jiloca River valley with the road being upgraded to the Autovía A-23. It is crossed by the N-211. The road passes over the Alto de Cella (1,013m) near Cella before dropping into Teruel. Here the N-330 branches off to the south.

The road rises to cross the Puerto de Escandón (1,242m) and the Sierra de Camarena. The road passes between the Serra d'Espadà and Sierra de Javalambre arriving at the coast at Sagunto and the Autopista AP-7.

Thanks Lew,    your detailed description brings back loads of memories, although it sounds like both roads have been upgraded a bit since I last used them.
