Walking the Via de la Plata from Salamanca to Zamora
This Walking Holiday explores the 6th section of Via de la Plata, from Salamanca to Zamora, 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 leave Salamanca and its lively buzz, we follow the well-indicated Scallop shells and we soon find ourselves walking across flat cultivated lands and along endless red earth tracks. The last walking day to Zamora is challenging for its length but as the first walking days are of short enough distances, anybody with an average level of fitness can do it. We finish this section in Zamora known as the “little Salamanca” for its architectural heritage.
