The Silver Route   (from Gijón to Seville, 7+ Nights)
From the first to the nineteenth century, the Vía de la Plata (silver route) was used as a major trading highway connecting important cities in Spain. Of considerable historical and artistic importance, you can see circuses, temples, aquaducts, bridges, arches and fortresses – and some beautiful cities where you can explore art galleries, museums, ancient cobbled streets and enjoy some exceptional regional foods and wines. The route begins in Seville, the ancient city of Hispalis. From there, passing through the ruins of Itálica, the ancient city of Roman Baetica, the route goes through Zafra and Almendralejo to Mérida, the so-called Hispanic Rome. It continues to Cáceres and Plasencia. Now in the lands of Castile, the route moves inwards to Béjar and Salamanca. Still heading north to Zamora, through fields of cereals and lakes, to Benavente and on to Astorga and León. Campomanes and Pola de Lena are the first landmarks in Asturias which lead towards Oviedo and Gijón, the end point of the journey. For centuries there has been a route between the mountains, valleys and plains, which unites the north and south of Spain. With many mines, the area took on great significance as a producer of precious metals and the Via de la Plata became the most important trading route connecting Gijon with Seville via Astorga, Leon, Salamanca and Merida.
