Salamanca to Zamora Map

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.

Highlights

Salamanca

Salamanca is a beautiful city that has so many things to offer. One of them is the Plaza Mayor which was built in Baroque style in the 18th century or the Cathedral that actually consists of two churches that were joined together. If you want to go for dinner or lunch afterward the city has a lot of good places to offer.

Calzada de Valdunciel

A nice place to pass by in Calzada de Veldunciel is the Iglesia parroquial de Santa Elena. It is a small church with an open space in front of it so you can relax after a long day of walking!

Itinerary

Day 1

SALAMANCA (Arrival)

Many consider Salamanca as one of the most spectacular Renaissance cities in Europe and its old centre was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1988. As well as being a favourite destination for both Spanish and foreigners, the city has also a strong student culture. The thirteenth-century university is still in use today and is one of the many tourist attractions of the old town.


Day 2
14.6km

SALAMANCA
to
CALZADA DE VALDUNCIEL

Leaving Salamanca, we enter what is known as La Meseta, the long high plateau of Central Spain. Shade is almost inexistant today as the Camino runs through flat crop fields split by red earth tracks. We have split it into a short stage, so it enables you to walk through the freshness of the first half of the day! Short transfer to hotel in Forfoleda.


Day 3
19.3km

CALZADA DE VALDUNCIEL
to
EL CUBO DE LA TIERRA DEL VINO

After you are transferred back from your hotel to Calzada de Valdeunciel, you’ll notice that today is quite similar to yesterday’s walk: crop fields and red earth tracks. Once arrived, you will have a short transfer to your hotel in Forfoleda.


Day 4
31.3km

EL CUBO DE LA TIERRA DEL VINO
to
ZAMORA

After you are transferred back from your hotel to El Cubo del Vino. After the first few kilometres you are back into a rural area before finally arriving in Zamora, a pleasant city, known as “The Little Salamanca".


Day 5

ZAMORA

Breakfast and don’t hesitate to visit the beautiful city of Zamora famous for its 24 characteristic Romanesque style churches of 12th and 13th centuries. In fact, it has been called the best museum of Romanesque style churches in all of Europe.
