The stages of the Via de la Plata from Sevilla
via Salamanca to Santiago de Compostela



Our pages on the Via de la Plata

Our pages on the Via de la Plata were completed in 2007. The development of the Picture Pages of the Camino at www.santiago-compostela.net since 2004 has been assisted by the Xunta de Galicia and by the Spanish Tourist Office in London.. We express our gratitude to them for this support.

The Via de la Plata is the longest of the pilgrim routes in Spain, starting from Seville in Andalucia, and running northwards through the proviinces of Extremadura and Castilla y Leon to Salamanca and Zamora.

After Zamora, the pilgirm has to make a choice - whether to continue on the Via de la Plata in the same northerly direction to Astorga, and then to join up with the Camino Francés to continue to Santiago, or to go directly to Santiago along a route known as the Galician variant or the Camino Sanbrés which turns to the north-west and goes through Ourense to Santiago. Both routes are around 1,000 km. in length, and can be walked in around 6 weeks. Compared with the Camino Francés, the Via de la Plata has very few pilgrims, yet it still has a good network of refugios, though some of the stages between them are quite long (over 30 km.)

The CSJ Pilgrim Guide and other guidebooks are available from the Confraternity of St. James bookshop
