This 137km stretch of the Via de la Plata Camino, starts in the small town of Carcaboso in the North of Extremadura and takes walkers to wonderful Salamanca city, renowned for its Renaissance architecture and its UNESCO-listed Old Town. This is one of the most beautiful sections of the Vía de la Plata Camino route, passing lakes and mountains, and offering pilgrims the chance to taste great food (Pata Negra ham amongst many other things) and enjoy the best bird-watching in Spain! On this Camino section you will discover many different landscapes: forests, farmland and vast plains as well as crossing the stimulating (but not challenging) Dueña mountain range, one of the Vía de la Plata highest points (at 1140m).
