    Walking the Via de la Plata from Salamanca to Zamora map

    Via de la Plata 6/10 Day 1Salamanca

    Many consider Salamanca as one of the most spectacular Renaissance cities in Europe and its old centre was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1988. As well as being a favourite destination for both Spanish and foreigners, the city has also a strong student culture. The thirteenth-century university is still in use today and is one of the many tourist attractions of the old town.

    Via de la Plata 6/10 Day 2Salamanca to Calzada de Valdeunciel - (16 km,4h)

    Leaving Salamanca, we enter what is known as La Meseta, the long high plateau of Central Spain. Shade is almost inexistant today as the Camino runs through flat crop fields split by red earth tracks. We have split it into a short stage, so it enables you to walk through the freshness of the first half of the day! Short transfer to hotel in Forfoleda.

    After you are transferred back from your hotel to Calzada de Valdeunciel, you?ll notice that today is quite similar to yesterday's walk: crop fields and red earth tracks. Once arrived, you will have a short transfer to your hotel in Forfoleda.

     

    Via de la Plata 6/10 Day 4 El cubo de tierra del Vino to Zamora-(33km, 8h15)

    After you are transferred back from your hotel to El Cubo del Vino, after the first few kilometres you are back into a rural area before finally arriving in Zamora, a pleasant city, known as "The Little Salamanca

    Via de la Plata 6/10

    This Walking Holiday explores the 6th section of Via de la Plata, the longest of all Camino routes to Santiago de Compostela! It runs through the whole country from South to North, from the hot Andalucian plains to the green mountains of Galicia, from Moorish influenced buildings to traditional stone farmhouses and much more! This Camino in its entirety offers most of Spain's rich and mixed culture.

    As we leave Salamanca and its lively buzz, we follow the well-indicated Scallop shells and we soon find ourselves walking across flat cultivated lands and along endless red earth tracks. The last walking day to Zamora is challenging for its length but as the first walking days are of short enough distances, anybody with an average level of fitness can do it. We finish this section in Zamora known as the "little Salamanca" for its architectural heritage.
