The Via de la Plata – Salamanca to Zamora 6/10

Section 6 of the Via de la Plata Camino route starts in the stunning city of Salamanca, a UNESCO world heritage site since 1988. This part of the Camino walk is dominated by flat farmland and red earth tracks stretching as far as the eye can see. The first few walking days are relatively short but the last walking day to Zamora is a bit longer and therefore a bit more challenging. However, anybody with a reasonable fitness level can do it! This section of the Via de la Plata Camino finishes in the heritage city of Zamora, known locally as ‘little Salamanca’. While Salamanca might be more famous world-wide, Zamora is a hidden gem and has its own share of stunning architecture, including 24 Romanesque churches, the highest number in Europe!
