The Via de la Plata brings pilgrims from southern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. If you want to walk this trail but only have a week to spare, walk the last 100 km of the Via de la Plata or Camino Sanabrés from Ourense to Santiago.
The original Via de la Plata was a Roman road that stretched from modern-day Mérida to Astorga. Today, the term refers to the route followed by Camino de Santiago pilgrims from southern Spain to Santiago de Compostela.
The last 100 km will be all in Galicia, and you will start in Ourense, the capital of the province with the same name and a city with an important roman past. When you are there, take the opportunity to relax at the termas, natural hot springs, and get energized for your Camino.
The walk from Ourense to Santiago will be full of greenery, small villages and all the charm that Galicia has to offer.
