Is Via de la Plata really not walkable in July?

The question was:

Is it really not doable in July? Has anybody done it and strongly advises not to do it?

Read all the good advice regarding Via de la Plata in July in our Camino de Santiago forum.

    Yes it is Hot!!! in July & August – However the daylight starts early. This makes
    for great morning light for photos – Even a Phone/Camera takes good photos in the early morning light!!

    Too Hot in sevilla!

    even the locals find it too hot

    Don’t do it if you have any alternative , May , April would be the best time for optimal weather and temperature! !

    i walked from end of february till begin of april and it was already 30 degrees in andalucia/extremadura sometimes in the mittle of the day. (but almost zero in the night *brrrrr*) some stretches could be extremly hard in the heat in the summer. BUT it´s your way and if u JUST have time in july and u don´t want to walk any other camino . DO IT ! Water and shade will be you´r most neccesary things to look after ! bon camino !

    I walked there from the end of August… it was very hot ( hot boiling).. If you like it – can go…Everything depends of what you prefer…
