The Vía de La Plata

From Sevilla to Santiago de Compostela. 38 sections. 963 km. 

Andalusia is the starting point for the Vía de la Plata or Southern Way, a Camino that crosses the Iberian Peninsula from South to North through the regions of Extremadura and Castilla y León.

Astorga is the town where pilgrims on the Vía de la Plata traditionally meet those on the Camino Francés or French Way to access Galicia and continue to Santiago de Compostela.  Besides, you can also continue to Puebla de Sanabria and do the Sanabria Way.

This Route offers nature, calm landscapes and quaint villages. The Vía de la Plata also goes through Roman ruins, historic cities and lively towns such as for example the Andalusian capital, Seville, and UNESCO Heritage Sites such as Mérida, Cáceres or Salamanca. The Southern Way is a great chance for pilgrims to discover amazing spots such as the ruins of Augusta Emerita, or to enjoy some Iberico ham.

Historically, this Camino was used to trade in silver coming from the Americas by ship to the port of Seville, hence its name (literally, silver way). In fact, that is also the current name of the Roman road that goes through Mérida, Salamanca and Astorga, and even of the autovía (toll-free highway) that links Seville to León.
