Via de la Plata 1/10 Day 1Sevilla

Capital city of Andalucia, Sevilla appeals to visitors with its rich architectural heritage, its atmosphere, its year-round sunny weather and incredible atmosphere. Among the city's main attractions don't miss the massive and impressive Gothic UNESCO World Heritage cathedral, the Alcazar and ,of course, the Plaza de Espana.

Via de la Plata 1/10 Day 2 Sevilla to Guillena (23km, 5h30)

Today is not only the first day of this section, but also the starting point of the whole Via de la Plata route. After leaving the heart of the city, we pass through several industrial estates until we reach Santiponce and the ruins of Italica, an ancient Roman city. It is then a peaceful walk through flat landscapes, occupied by sunflowers, cotton fields and olive trees. Once in Guillena, it's just a short transfer to your hotel in Castilblanco de los Arroyos.

Via de la Plata 1/10 Day 3Guillena to Castilblanco de los Arroyos (18km, 4h45)

Transfer back to Guillena. The Camino leaves the whitewashed town of Guillena and quickly reaches Venta, a modern town nearby. Then, for the most part, it runs through the Andalusian countryside with orange and olive groves and other farmland. As we enter the National Park of Sierra Norte de Sevilla, the landscape becomes more dry and rocky. The last leg of the day is a steep climb up to the beautiful town of Castilblanco de los Arroyo.

Via de la Plata 1/10 Day 4Castilblanco de los Arroyos to Almaden de la Plata (30km, 7h30)

We start this day with an uphill walk, passing by Ermita de Santa de Escardiel. A few kilometres further on, we enter Parque Forestal de El Berrocal where oak trees offer shelter from the sun. An undulating path leads us Almaden de la Plata.

Via de la Plata 1/10 Day 5Almaden de la Plata to El Real de la Jara (16km, 4h15)

The route we follow today gives us a real feel for traditional Andalucia; black pigs, bulls and horses can all be seen from the Way. The Camino does not enter any village until we reach El Real de la Jara. A short transfer will take you to your hotel in Santa Ollala de la Calla.

Via de la Plata 1/10 Day 6 El Real de la Jara to Monesterio (20km, 4h15)

Transfer back to El Real de la Jara. Soon after El Real de la Jara, the Camino leaves Andalucia and enters Extremadura. During the first half of the day the terrain is mostly flat. A gentle ascent will offer good views over the Sierra Morena. The landscape surrounding us is mostly occupied by cows and sheep as there are no villages (and little shade) along this stretch to Monesterio.
