My wife and I started from Malaga on emergecy day (112 ). Now walked three days. Weather like summer, don’t envy those walking on CF with a lot of snow. Albergue in Almogia was available, a bit cold, former Pilgrims a week ago. No kitchen, but microwave to use. Albergue Villanueva de la Concepcion available, too, Cold too, no heather, kitchen yes, but no egvibments, happily micro is working. Antequera parroguial albergue not open, but there is plenty of inexpensive hostels in town. Day three the mountain Sierra Los Chimeneas was spectacular, not for weak nerves. If you seek a solitary Camino, this is the one for you, at least on February. This route is perfectly waymarked, thanks to Malaga Associacion. In every fork there is the arrow where to go, and a cross where not.

Our plan is to continue to Merida, then VldP to Salamanca, then switch to Torres and to CP to Santiago

Sounds amazing, I'm sure it will be super interesting to compare these four different trails. ¡Buen camino!

And how long do you think that it will take you to complete this trek?

Soon you will be in groves and groves and groves and miles and miles of olive trees... but yes, the mountains were spectacular!

Almeria Mozarabic (2017)

Yes. You will soon be in vast olive groves. From Castro del Rio your path will merge with the other Mozarabic routes that start in Jaen and Almeria. Three times the traffic! But don't worry, it's still quiet.
I hope you have time to stop at the many spectacular places on this route. Take some time to explore Cordoba, Magacela, Merida, and others. When you enter Merida, you'll pass an elementary school with a huge "CAMINO MOZARABE" painted on the wall. If it's a school day, you should enter and introduce yourselves to the staff. They may well invite you to say hello to the kids, who learn about the Camino in their curriculum.

I'm looking forward to following your progress. Buen Camino!

Will be following you. After Easter in Malaga, I have not yet decided whether to start in Malaga or Merida. But go, I will. Planning to end in Merida, with the lovely Roman remains there.

Starting and ending in Mérida would make for one short walk! ;)
:):):) It should be Malaga or Almeria! But I think it will be Almeria.

A few days more on Camino Mozrabe de Malaga. Still no other Pilgrims met. Perfect weather. Albergue Villanueva de Algais available, key from thr bar. 21 pm. Policia Local came in to chec passports. A large albergue, only microwave to cook.
Encinas Reales albergue available, too. Very simply, no heathing. No kitchen, no micro . First time in our lifetime on policecar, when she carried us to albergue.
No albergue in Lucena. Our choice is Pension Sara. Inexpensive with breakfast.
After Encinas Reales there was a shoes off river crossing, otherwise easy walkable sandy countryroads, Oliveyards all over the mountains, amaizing skeneries.
Btw. All albergues, so far, have been Donativos. Kilometres collected 117km from Malaga to Lucena.
To be continued......
