Via de la Plata preview
The most famous of the four pilgrimage routes, this is otherwise known as the Via de la Plata, and its name derives from the pilgrimage taken by the Mozarabic Christians at the time when Spain was dominated by the Moors. It is over 1000 km from its starting point in Seville and, whereas the Camino Frances enjoys over 100000 pilgrims each year, only 15000 travel on this camino annually. You can cycle the route, too, but only if you are very fit and taking a mountain bike. It is definitely not terrain for a touring bike. The walk will take 6-8 weeks and there will be some long days walking.
