Vía de La Plata Route

Trekking/cycling tourism
about 2 hour 50 minutes.
11.75 km

This route follows one of the most travelled paths since the remotest Antiquity.

The wealth of history of what we now call the Vía de la Plata route, whose name comes from the Arabic word balata meaning ‘slab or brick’, i.e. the Paved Way, is seen in the countless remains along the route, including one of our most interesting heritage sites: the Roman city of Contributa Iulia.
