A lovely site - nice music so turn up your speakers - on the recent efforts to way mark the historic pilgrims' route from Zaragoza to Valencia.

The road to San Vicente Martir, is a path that recalls the footsteps of the saint, when in the fourth century he was captured in Zaragoza by Roman soldiers sent by the consul Daciana. He was moved to Valencia and became a martyr when he refused to give up his faith. They threw his lifeless body into the waters of Cullera south of the city.
The road had its years of glory in the early centuries of Christianity in the peninsula. It is documented that many pilgrims came to visit the lifeless body of San Vicente and the name of the Via Augusta was changed to The Way of Vicentius in some stretches. But with the arrival of the Arabs, all these tracks were erased.
Now the pilgrims' route will be reannimated:
Last summer about 60 people traveled along it, even though there are no signs yet, but with a few small signs and a little sense of direction is easy.
The proposal is that the road begins in Roda de Isábena which has the only Cathedral dedicated to San Vincente in Spain. From there it will through Ainsa to Huesca.
A group of volunteers recently followed the route of the Roman road through Zaragoza and to Longares, Daroca, Carignan, Moreal del Campo, where they turned toward the Maestrazgo, looking Cantavieja and Morella.
In the territory of Valenciana, down Vallibona and up the Via Augusta, the most important and longest Roman Road of Roman Iberia. They followed the Roman road south, via Sant Mateu, Cabanes, Largs, Sagunto to the city of Valencia.
