Soak up southern Spain’s charms as you approach Santiago from Seville.
The Via de la Plata is the longest of Spanish Caminos. It begins in Seville, Andalucia, and crosses four regions of Spain before arriving at the Cathedral of Santiago. Southern Spain is an entirely different experience to the rest of the country and its Moorish history is a big feature. Seville, especially, has many wonderful Moorish monuments, particularly the Real Alcazar. Once you’ve departed Seville, your Camino is characterised by longer distances between villages than, say, the French Way, and a lot more time for quiet reflection. Even at its busiest, the Via de la Plata will be far quieter than its northern siblings, which can be a very attractive prospect for many pilgrims.
