Hi Xanxan,

for a very frequently updated list on accomodation on the Via de la Plata and the Sanabrés branch I refer to the Website made by Antonio Retamoso. You can even download the list as a "pdf".

Antonio Retamoso

Last summer it was updated every 6 to 8 weeks. So it is pretty up to date.

For your planings, you can use the planning-tool offered by "Godesalco" or this one:

Planning-tool RutasASantiago

I walked Salamanca-Zamora in two big stages, but you can also split it in 3 or 4 smaller ones.
Next June I will continue from Zamora.

It seems I remember someone mentioning a farm where there was a question of walking through or going around. Can someone tell me which stage of the VDLP that is on, and whether or not it is still an issue?

Hi Annie,

I can remember two places where the Via had temporarily to be redirected due to a quarrel with the proprietors of a finca/farm:

- Finca Arroyo Mateos between Almadén de la Plata and El Real de la Jara (but I do not think this was an issue after 2007 as in 2008 and this summer we were able to pass without any problems; godesalco says that the camino was closed between the end of 2004 and summer 2007)
- Finca Larios between Grimaldo and Galisteo causing pilgrims to walk over Riolobos (no issue in 2018 nor in 2019, but still mentioned in the German guidebook by R. Joos 2017)

So actually I do not think that these places are an issue any longer.

On the section between Grimaldo and Galisteo you pass another farm where you have to walk right through and which my fellow pilgrim thought was a bit intimidating, as you walk through the middle of pigs and there was a big free-range watch-dog, too. She also had problems with a herd of cows before entering Valdesalor. So as a general rule on the VdP you should not be too anxious as you will frequently walk throught pastures with some cattle in it.

Yes, I have checked Gronze, but haven't found the section about the farm -
But thanks? lol!

Alexandra’s info about the fincas is spot on. The one that caused most recent headaches, as she says, is between Grimaldo and Galisteo. The red dotted line to Riolobos on Gronze was the route to take when the finca was closed. https://www.gronze.com/etapa/grimaldo/carcaboso

I was there a couple of years ago, and was still having trouble feeling comfortable walking towards huge herds. The new route into Galisteo goes right through a large finca, and I wound up plastering myself against the fence as hundreds came up the hill towards me. Of course, the guy on the little scooter at the end waved at me dismissively and gave the standard comment — no hacen nada. I know that, but knowing it in my head doesn’t always translate into an anxiety-free passing. After that day, though, I did a much better job of just forging ahead when there were a few cows in the way, so it is all part of the challenge.

I feel bad for the people in Riolobos who took care of pilgrims so well when the detour was the official route. You will probably see signs advertising their place, and I did meet people who stayed there and said they were great. It’s really not that much of a detour, and I would go there if that spot makes sense for your walking plans.
