Walking the Via de la Plata from Caceres to Plasencia
This Walking Holiday explores the 4th section of the Via de la Plata, from Caceres to Plasencia, 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 whole offers most of Spain’s rich and mixed culture.
The well-marked Camino runs through the heart of Extremadura all the way to Carcaboso, yet this is where we observe the most-changing landscape, day after day. At the beginning, there is very little shade along the Way but as the landscape becomes a bit more undulating, woodland also starts to appear. Attractive towns with interesting heritage are also part of this section, with the likes of Caceres, Galisteo and Aldeanueva del Camino. As this section varies between very short walks and longer ones, this walking holiday is accessible to anybody with an average level of fitness.
