COVID December on the Via de la Plata

Past OR future Camino
SJPD-Burgos 2012/13 …. suspended the VdlP in Fuente de Cantos 3/20
I'm hoping to squeeze in a week in the Via de la Plata before Christmas, from Fuente de Cantos (where I'd got to just as the first lockdown began) northwards. Is anyone else planning to be on the Vdlp in December or have experience of what it's like in December?

Can't answer your specific questions, but I can tell you that merida is a beautiful city when you get there.

Hi Peter,

Cold and lonely.
You'll meet very few fellow pilgrims, and encounter freezing temperatures after dark.

I walked from Fuente de Cantos to Zafra today and started the VdlP on December 3rd. What @Xali1970 says roughly echoes my experience.

While I've yet to meet another pilgrim, the weather has been good so far. Mornings and evenings are chilly (lowest temps so far about 3-4 degrees) but it warms up over the course of the day (highest temps about 22 degrees centigrade), especially when the sun's out. So not quite freezing yet, but I'm sure we'll get there, moving north and further into December.

Buen camino!
