Via de la Plata - Second Edition

Well, I did it!
I bought my ticket for Madrid today!
After two nights there to adjust to the time change, I'll take a train to Seville.
I will attempt to finish, or at least make a dent in, the Via de la Plata, picking up from Fuente de Cantos, where I was forced to stop due to heat and no water a few years ago.

I'm going to arrive in Seville on May 10 and stay two nights so I can visit Italica.
Then I'll find a bus to Fuente and begin walking on May 12, if all goes well.

I've got a great itinerary, thanks to one of my forum friends Laurie, and hope the weather will be sunny and warm, but not hot.

I'm excited!
More tomorrow.

I'm going to Spain!


  1. Buen Camino! How wonderful. What better time to start a Camino than Easter?!! I'm so happy for you though have to admit that a little bit of me wishes I was in a position to join you. May God bless you and keep you and your companions safe on this pilgrimage.

  2. I wish you could join me too! Thank you for the blessings! I enjoy your comments so much!

  3. Incredible! I just stumbled across your blog whilst looking for resources/maps for the Via de la Plata. I too am doing the Via de la Plata. I start my camino on the 11th of May, cycling from Seville to Santiago over 8 days.

    What have you found to be the best map for the route? (I have struggled to find one).

  4. Ha... Just realised that this blog post was written LAST year..!
    I will check out the rest of your blog for good information that will help me during my camino. :-)

  5. You really do not need a map. The route is very well marked!
    There is an app you can get from the App Store, if you have a smart phone.
    It is just a Via de la Plata guide and is by Melanie.
    Buen Camino!

    1. One thing to note is that some albergues may be full around the railroad they're building. But on a bike, you will be fine to ride around the problem areas.
