    Walking the Via de la Plata from Zamora to Puebla de Sanabria

    Walking the Via de la Plata from Zamora to Puebla de Sanabria map

    This Walking Holiday explores the 7th 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. Read more

    Via de la Plata 7/10 Day 1Zamora

    With a Romanesque cathedral, fortified walls and overlooking the Rio Duero, Zamora has it all to charm visitors from all over. Its architectural heritage is so rich it is commonly called "The little Salamanca"!

    Via de la Plata 7/10 Day 2Zamora to Montamarta (4h45, 20km)

    For this first walking day, the Camino runs through the typical Castilla y Leon landscape: red earth crop fields cut across by endless flat wide tracks that seem inhabited only by storks. There is little shade along the way, but the reasonable length of the day gives us a chance to get to Montamarta before the heat hits its peak. Short transfer to Zamora

    Via de la Plata 7/10 Day 3 Montamarta to Granja de Moreruela (5h30, 23km)

    Transfer from hotel back to Montamarta. On this day, we walk through the same background as on the previous day. The only difference being that we come across the Elsa dam and river several times.

    Via de la Plata 7/10 Day 4Granja de Moreruela to Tabara (6h30, 25km)

    Today the landscape is a little bit greener with more trees and shelter from the sun but it keeps its flat shape and red earth. Overall, it is an easy and enjoyable stroll to Tabara.

    Via de la Plata 7/10 Day 5Tabara to Santa Marta de Tera (5h45, 23km)

    We leave Tabara to continue our way towards Santa Marta de Tera. The Camino runs through a plateau set between the Elsa River and Rio Tera so it is no wonder where all this sudden vegetation comes from! When arriving in Santa Marta, you can visit its 12th century Romanesque church.

    Via de la Plata 7/10 Day 6Santa Marta de Tera to Villar de Farfon (5h15, 21km)

    Leaving Santa Marta de Tera, we enter the Sanabria Valley as the Camino now follows the course of the pretty Rio Tera. This is an enjoyable and beautiful stroll as we spend most of the day through the countryside. Quiet tracks, poplar trees, charming rural hamlets, water channels and dams will form part of the day. Short transfer to hotel in Camarzana de Tera

    Via de la Plata 7/10 Day 7Villar de Farfon to Mombuey (4h, 15km)

    Transfer from hotel back to Villar de Farfon. The first few kilometres after Villar de Farfon are through the peaceful countryside, home of wild boars and even shy Iberian wolves! The vegetation then starts to change to scrub and bush lands and as we approach Mombuey, we have great views of the Sierra de la Cabrera in the distance.

    Via de la Plata 7/10 Day 8Mombuey to Puebla de Sanabria (8h30, 32km)

    As we leave Mombuey, the Camino heads to more open countryside even though there are still many poplar and oak trees to provide us with shade. When passing the village of San Salvador de Palazuelos, you can climb up the bell tower of Iglesia de Santiago to enjoy magnificent views over the surrounding landscape. We cross Rio Tera one last time before entering the gorgeous old town of Puebla de Sanabria.
