Cycling the Ruta Vía de la Plata

John Hayes. Cicerone Press, 2022. This guide describes both road and off-road routes to the Vía de la Plata, one of Spain's most important pilgrim routes.

The 930km ride from the southern coastal plan across the central plateau and over the Cantabrian mountains to the north coast passes by notable towns and cities such as Seville, Mérida, Cáceres, Salamanca, León, Zamora, Oviedo and Santiago de Compostela, and 8 UNESCO world heritage sites. Mainly empty roads and gentle climbs make the route accessible for a wide range of cyclists.
