As stated above i would like to know if there is a camino between Malaga and the start of the V de L Plata in Seville , and if so it,s name so i can do a bit of a search .
I know the Mozarabe from Malaga joins the V de L Plata at Merida but i would like to start the v dlp in Seville.

Any info would be appreciated .

Regards.....John

John:

I would recommend you go to the www.gronze.com website. Here you can see a list of all Camino's.

I am not sure if there is some significance in starting from Malaga. If not the Camino Augusta starts in Cadiz and connects to the VdlP in Sevilla.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Joe

I couldn't find anything about a Malaga-Seville route but a few minutes with Google Maps suggests that it is walkable (190km) although perhaps 15km will be on local carreteras (the rest seems to be on country lanes). It would be able to work out stages. Looking at accommodation, I don't see any sign of albergues, but at least one town (Alcala de Guadaira), just east of Seville, has at least one alojamiento (Casa de la Cura) which appears to be used by pilgrims. Otherwise, accomodation can likely be rustled up from hostales and the occasional casa rural. I don't think that you'll find it a crowded route.

Hi John.
I don’t think there’s a marked route between Malaga and Seville, but I suspect you will bike it, in that case I think you could cover the 190 odd kms in 4? easy days, and use google maps for navigation, or as an alternative look at Alan’s post re the route from Gibraltar.
In any event forget the albergue in Alcala, it has for some while been used as a shelter for homeless people ( see HeiliL’s post) in the Augusta section.
Have a happy Christmas
George

jpflavin1....No real reason to start in Malaga apart from the ease of flying into that city and the fact that i have gathered lots of info from Magwood/george g/islandwalker about the route leaving the city.

oursonpolaire..... Thanks for your reply....Yes i have also looked at google maps but at the moment i just wanted to find out if there was a recognized camino between the 2 cities .

george.g........Hello....lovely to hear from you . As you know i have a minor foot problem so biking is the only realistic option for longer distances . This September i again cycled from Seville instead of the planned Malaga start . I was just hoping i could start in Malaga this time and still pass through Seville .
I will look at the route from Gibraltar , thanks for that .

Happy christmas to you george .

Regards......John

At the risk of seeming like a grinch, especially with just a little over 12 hours to Feliz Navidad ...

What has happened to get up and do it?

Why, oh why, must we seem to rely on the work of others and have no apparent originality ourselves. Where have the Ed Hillary's gone?

Yes, look in Gronze. Examine hiking.WayMarkedTrails.org. Yes look in OpenStreetMap.org. And check out Google.xxx/maps. All on line.

For infrequently travelled camino don't expect to find a signed path, or dormitory type hostels. So it might not have anything like the "infrastructure" of the more popular camino focussing on Compostella.

But it will be your camino. You might be the first to write it up and share your positive experiences and where things might be improved. Or even warn of real dangers.

And so I say, kia kaha (take care, be strong, get going)

That is a harsh reaction to the questions asked. What is the reason/excuse for the forum's existence? Are only "original" endeavours worth doing?

I'd advise an app called mapy.cz -- which is also an online hiking maps website.

Short answer, there is a GR248 out of Malaga eventually joining the Camino Mozarabe at Alcala la Real, but frankly if it were me, I'd just ignore it completely and just make my way village to village til just south of Cordoba (maybe at the Aguilar de la Frontera > Montilla > Espejo stretch), and join the Camino there ...

On the really obscure caminos (I know whereof I speak, as I've done a few of them), one is very grateful indeed for the scantiest bit of information, if anyone has been so insane as to have done the route before. On the Castellano Aragonese, the Vadiniense, and the Ebro, I have benefitted by asking, and getting the observations of the few mad souls (hola peregrina2000!) who had been on them. Indeed, if I had asked before I went on the route out of Mont Saint Michel, I would have known a few helpful things.

In any case, I spent a happy insomnia hour on Google Earth tracing a possible path, although I think it would be a stinkingly hot walk for 3 months of the year. If jony jony ventures forth, we expect a full account!

AlwynWellington.........As there are many obscure and less well travelled Camino's i asked the simple question if anyone knew if there was a camino between Malaga and Seville , and if so , its name so " I could do a bit of research"

If you just had to reply would it not have been more helpful to say you dont know if there is a named camino but looking at the 2 websites you mention ( which i have not heard of so thanks for that ) may be of help .

Regards......John

My old IGN map of the traditional Camino paths in Europe show a Way out of Malaga going along the motorway route to Sevilla, so technically it's a variant of the Via de la Plata (and you could probably get close to that on a bicycle, or DIY a completely different route on small roads fairly far south of the motorway) -- though another variant leads into the Camino Mozarabe, and as I tried to suggest, the only waymarked hiking route out of Malaga to an established "official" Camino gets on to the Mozarabe at Alcala la Real.

JabbaPapa.......Many thanks for your reply . I would prefer using a recognized Camino to arrive in Seville so i am now thinking of the Camino from Gibraltar , as suggested by george.g , or more likely , the Augusta from Cadiz .

Regards.....John

Hi John,
I’ve been thinking that on reflection, perhaps the Augusta might not have been the best option, Google maps suggests 6 hours Cadiz to Seville, which sounds a bit ambitious, but it is only about 125 kms so only a couple of days. Don’t forget there are no Albergues so you have to use hostels etc.
If you do decide to take that route make sure you get the most up to date route, it may have been resigned recently.
Best regards
George

Hello again George ..........i have found this website....http://www.asociaciongaditanajacobea.org/albergues.htm for info on hostals/pensions . If i do choose this route i would like to cycle round the bay , so that would bring the distance to around 175 klms which would mean probably 2 nights stay between Cadiz and Seville .
Thanks again for your input .

Hi John,
Sounds like you have another great ride coming up! There is info on cycling routes that might serve as connectors for you on the Transandalus website, the Gran Senda de Malaga website, and Wikiloc. Also, the Gaia website has a layer that will enable you see Spain's IGN maps for any area you choose. We were just in the city of Cadiz and loved the extensive network of cycle trails through the city - nice.
Good luck with the route planning,
Elaine

Hello Elaine , nice to hear from you again .
Once again many thanks for your input and i have just done a "google " street view of Cadiz and i must say the cycle/walking track around the bay and onto Barrio Jarana looks a lovely ride .

Thank you so much .

Regards......John

Alwyn:

We can not all be Pioneers, though I bet there were many who wish they had a guide book or directions to their end goal.

That said, there is not a lot of unknown territory here. There is always a road trail or some path to follow in 99.9% of Spain.

Also take into consideration that there are many who want to walk that have different security needs to try something they have never done. This forum and the information gives many the needed comfort to do something out of their comfort zone.

Keep the questions and information flowing.

Regards,
Joe

Malaga is an eminently traditional starting point -- problem is though, the traditional and BTW best walkable route to Sevilla has been turned into an unhikeable motorway.
