- April 8-22, 2023 -
*Recommended in The Sunday Times, Dec 2022*

processions on EASTER SUNDAY in CÁCERES

EXTREMADURA

Our journey acquaints us with Spain’s past & present. Gentle walks through contrasting landscapes of Spain’s regional history, music, architecture combined with excellent food and wine. Local people on our route will share all of this with us as we make our way northwards to our final destination.

 

An 8-night adventure along the Via de la Plata, a lesser traveled route of the Camino de Santiago. Starting with the dramatic setting of Seville on Maundy Thursday, we discover Spain at the most poignant time of the Spanish church year. We travel through the contrasting regions of Andalusia, Extremadura, Castile & Leon, and Galicia, stepping off the path briefly for a night in the Portuguese town of Braganza. In addition to the Maundy Thursday Procession in Seville, we witness processions on Good Friday in the town of Zafra & Easter Sunday in the world heritage town of Cáceres. Continuing from the Hispanic world’s oldest University town of Salamanca to the land of the Conquistadores in Extremadura and through the lush pastures of Galicia, we finish our journey in Santiago de Compostela.
