Ruta de la Plata
This is a remote walk in western Spain which has much in common with the Camino de Santiago.
This is the Ruta de la Plata or the Silver Road, which leads from the south of Spain to the north, following ancient roads and tracks between Seville and Salamanca. Once a major Roman thoroughfare the road was used by the Moors and then the pilgrims to Santiago. Today the route visits some of the most beautiful yet unknown towns of the country: Trujillo, Cáceres and Guadalupe, places that have great resonance with the Spanish speaking world and south America in particular. Excellent walking includes the dehesa or oak studded grassland of Extremadura, the Monfragüe National Park and the Roman road itself.
