New Branch of Mozárabe -- Through Trujillo

#1
This article on Gronze describes a route to connect the Mozárabe to the Vdlp by walking through Trujillo. It is 90 km shorter. The split takes place in Castuera, and from there it is 300 km to Mérida on the "traditional" mozárabe, as opposed to 210 through the more direct route.

(The article also casts doubt on the assertion that this was a route followed by peregrinos mozárabes after the Reconquest)

This is the route that alansykes took last year. See his account here: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/granada-to-guadalupe.44075/ It follows livestock paths for the most part, but has a stretch along the N-630 (not heavily used because of the autovía, but walking alongside the highway is not fun).

No albergues yet, but casas parroquiales seem to be available, along with pensiones.

So any mozárabe pilgrim looking to save 90 km should consider this route, it is apparently marked and ready to go!
