Short video of my 4 days on the Camino del Sur

Hi all, here is a link to a little video I made of my short 4 day walk on the Camino del Sur route that begins in Huelva (where I currently live) and officially ends in Zafra, where it links up with the VDLP. Unfortunately, due to the COVID restrictions at the time (Semana Santa 2021) I was only able to do the first four days of the walk which got me to Aracena, but typically the route is done in 7 stages to get to Zafra. But I decided it would be worth it to just do four days and get to know the province of Huelva a little better. I'm definitely glad I did it, even if it's not the most well-known or beautiful route. The video will hopefully give you an idea of the landscapes of central and northern Huelva. Lot's of history along the route too, especially having to do with mining. The absolute highlight of the trip, and best experience I've had on a camino so far (some of you may remember my Frances video from earlier this year), occurred on the second day. I contacted a local in Valverde del Camino, a man who played a large part in establishing this particular route, and he warmly welcomed me into his home for the night. He showed me around the town, taught me about the history, showed me his nice little garden, and I had a nice family dinner with him, his wife, and their son. Anyway, it's just a simple little video, nothing like the effort I put into the previous one, but maybe you will enjoy it. I'm going to walk a week or two on the Norte at the beginning of June so hopefully I'll be able to document that as well!

Thank you for the video: Very interesting. Your love for animals shows. I didn't like the Rio Tinte mine, though...

It must be big fun to walk out from your building and straight onto a Camino. Envy.

Thanks so much for putting up this video about the Camino del Sur! It seems like we rarely see information on it, and yet there is so much of interest in Huelva to enjoy. I loved your story about the man in Valverde del Camino. How lucky you were to connect with him! We cycled roughly the same route in reverse on the TransAndalus so your video bought back a lot of happy memories. I'm looking forward to your continuation.

Thank you David. Was this in March or early April? I’m a “Feb-April” pilgrim.
It’s nice to see a video as one gets a better feel for the terrain. I walked the Via Augusta (Cadiz to Sevilla) in 6 days in March 2019. Had planned to go on to the VDLP but due to a family illness I didn’t continue after Sevilla. The Sur route looks nicer vs the Augusta, which I wouldn’t really recommend (apart from Cadiz it was fairly monotonous and lacking infrastructure between towns making 30 km days a must). Thanks will add the Sur to my winter Camino list.

Yes, March 26-29 I was walking, and then spent an extra day in Aracena and did some walking around there in the sierras. I wish I was able to continue on from there because I think those last 3 stages are considered the more beautiful stages. But weather wise this was the perfect time to walk.
