The Via de la Plata, also known as Camino Mozárabe, is by far the longest Camino route (it is 1000 kms long) crossing the whole of Spain from South to North, from Andalucía to Galicia. This Camino route was traditionally used by North African Christians on their way to Santiago de Compostela and it reveals Spain’s untold story. You will start this Camino journey in magnificent Sevilla, where you should witness the raw passion of a live Flamenco show.

As you leave Seville, your path will be surrounded by orange trees, olive groves and bulls (behind fences don’t worry!). Entering the home of the ‘conquistadores’, you will discover a medieval Spain, off the beaten track and full of wonderful churches and palaces. The Romans have also left their mark in this part of the country where you will encounter some of the best preserved Roman sites in Europe: such as aqueducts, theatres and other impressive Roman archaeology in Merida and Caparra. Extremadura is also home to some of the best bird watching in Europe so bring your binoculars! Crossing the beautiful ‘Sierra del Grado’, you will come to Salamanca and Zamora (both UNESCO listed heritage cities), and very soon you will enter the green and remote mountains of Galicia.

After Ourense, you will discover THE most beautiful of all the last 100km sections to Santiago, with nice paths, forests, hills and outstanding views. Santiago de Compostela awaits!
