Camino de Santiago de Levante
The Camino de Levante is the set of stages on the pilgrim route that starts from Valencia to Santiago de Compostela, crossing the Iberian Peninsula from east to northwest. Therefore, the Camino de Santiago de Levante has a distance of approximately 1,200 kilometres.
On this tour you will have the opportunity to enjoy the changing landscape of five Spanish communities: Valencia, Castilla La-Mancha, Madrid, Castilla y Leon, and Galicia. In addition, you can visit cities such as Albacete, Toledo, Avila and Zamora
The Camino de Santiago de Levante joins the Camino del Sureste in Albacete. From there, both paths traverse much of the Iberian Peninsula, to go in search of the Via de la Plata. In Granja de Moreruela, the Camino del Levante joins up with La Via de la Plata.
If you do not have so much time to do the Camino de Levante completely, you can start the Camino de Santiago from Ponferrada, since from there there is only approximately 200 km. to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.
