Walking the Via de la Plata from Puebla de Sanabria to A Gudina map

This Walking Holiday explores the 8th 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 8/10 Day 1 Puebla de Sanabria

Perched on top of a hill, the small yet gorgeous old town of Puebla de Sanabria has plenty to offer. With its castle overlooking the town and the valley of Rio Tera and its cobbled streets, the village is a nice spot to relax in a peaceful locagtion, full of history.

Via de la Plata 8/10 Day 2Puebla de Sanabria to Requejo (11 km, 3h)

For the first walking day of this section, we start with a short and quiet stroll to Requejo. When leaving Puebla de Sanabria, we cross over the Rio Castro. Later on we start to climb up gradually onto natural paths through pine and oak woods, passing by the Romanesque Iglesia de Santiago de Terroso. Then there are some great views of the mountains before you reach Requejo. Short transfer to your hotel in Puebla de Sanabria.

Via de la Plata 8/10 Day 3Requejo to Lubian (18 km, 4h30)

In the morning, transfer from your hotel back to Requejo. As soon as you leave Requejo, you will feel the appeal of Galicia even though you will only enter it the following day. Indeed, the peace of the countryside and the lovely route through oaks and brackens will undoubtedly bewitch you, even though the rocky and sometimes muddy paths can sometimes make this up and downhill walk a little challenging.

Via de la Plata 8/10 Day 4 Lubian to A Gudina (25km, 6h)

Soon after leaving Lubian, you reach the Baroque church of Santuario de la Virgen de la Tuiza. Then it is a challenging day as the Camino undulates through wood and farm lands with steep ups and downs all day long. It also runs through charming villages and offers a beautiful walk before entering A Gudi?a.
