Walking the Via de la Plata from A Gudina to Ourense
This Walking Holiday explores the 9th section of the Via de la Plata (Camino Mozárabe), from A Gudina to Ourense, the longest of all Camino routes to Santiago de Compostela!It runs through the whole country from South to North, from the hot Andalucian plains to the green mountains of Galicia, from Moorish influenced buildings to traditional stone farmhouses and much more! This Camino in its entirety offers most of Spain’s rich and mixed culture.
Green and undulating landscapes, there is no doubt: you are in Galicia! The Camino, or Way of Saint James, crosses the South West edge of the Cordillera Cantabrica, through isolated villages and roaming cattle. It definitely offers some of the most stunning views of the whole Via de la Plata route! As there are steady bits, it is quite challenging, but we have organised our walking days so they are all less than 22 kilometres long.
