Hi!!

I would like to have as much information as possible about the "Via Trajana".

Via Trajana is an alternative way between Calzada del Coto (5 km after Sahagún) and Mansilla de las Mulas.

So far I have the track of Via Trajana and I know the albergues. I would like to count with any other information about that Way that I can collect: Historical & cultural information, significant buildings, other services apart from albergues, local celebrations, etc.

If you have any source of information related with this Via, I would appreciate if you could provide me the links.

there is a fountain with a swing in a dip about 2km before calzadilla de los hermanillos. the only one on the route that is not in one of the villages.

calzada and calzadilla have little churches. don't know of other historical building of note. the route runs across some african-style bushland, but mainly fields, and crosses a few streambeds. there are an abandoned swimming pool and an abandoned little train station on the route, if that counts. :)

You should ask the folks who own the Casa del Cura. They are not only wonderful hosts, but also full of information about the area. There is a page on their website with some information, but you'd likely get a lot more in person.

It's a long and lonely road . . . .

You might get lucky and see the transhumance, depending on what time of the year you are walking. I spent most of the day with what seemed like thousands of sheep to one side of me, all moving with me, but just a bit slower. A very very memorable day. And they say the meseta is boring!!
