Walking the Via de la Plata from Puebla de Sanabria to A Gudina
This Walking Holiday explores the 8th section of the Via de la Plata, from Puebla de Sanabria to A Gudina, 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.
As we veer west, this 8th section on the Via de la Plata route to Santiago de Compostela offers some of the most rewarding views of the whole Camino. This portion of the Way also enters Galicia and runs through beautiful low mountains, making it challenging but offering great views all days long. We have balanced the geographical difficulties by splitting the stages into shorter walks so it is accessible to anybody with an average level of fitness.
