7 NIGHT ROMAN SILVER ROUTE TOUR B ITINERARY

ITINERARY

Day 1: Sunday

HIGHLIGHTS:  This lovely town is closely linked to the Ntra. Sra. de Guadalupe Shrine. The welcoming town has been declared a national monument, and has the necessary infrastructure to accommodate the thousands of visitors and pilgrims who come to this part of Extremadura throughout the year. The area around the monastery is notable for its traditional vernacular architecture. Highlights include the Guadalupe Royal Monastery, San Juan Bautista Hospital, Infantes and Gramatica schools and the interesting traditional architecture which can be found along every street and square.

Day 2: Monday

HIGHLIGHTS:  Plasencia is the next stop on our journey along this stretch of the Ruta de Plata, and a gift for our final hours in Extremadura, a gift to be enjoyed by visiting such sights as the two cathedrals: New and Old. Around the cathedrals you will find many lovely spots. The Main Square (Plaza Mayor), with its bustling activity, the Episcopal Palace, the palace of the Marquises of Mirabel, Carvajal-Giron Palace and Las Torres Palace, and the convent of San Vicente Ferrer are other highlights of the city.

Day 3: Tuesday

HIGHLIGHTS:  A lovely town filled with history, a history to be discovered through the 12th-century cathedral, town walls, on which construction began under King Fernando II of León, 16th-century City Hall building, palaces of the Castro and Aguila families, Vazquez family house, 16th- and 17th-century Cerralbo Chapel, San Francisco Convent, San Andres Church, convent of the Claras, and more. Ciudad Rodrigo is a town which will take you back in time.

Day 4: Wednesday

HIGHLIGHTS:  Stroll to the center of the baroque 18th-century Main Square (Plaza Mayor), look around and allow yourself to be seduced by its beauty and harmony. The living heart of the city is the starting point for our tour. Among the many monuments you will discover the 15th-century House of Shells (Casa de las Conchas), the Old Cathedral (13th-century), New Cathedral (16th-18th centuries), and the university (16th-century), as well as many churches, palaces and the archives. The provincial capital is a treasure house of monuments, a city in which the hustle and bustle of the university throbs with unceasing cultural activity. Nearby lies the Armuna region (Castellanos de Villiquera, Monterrubio, Gomecello, La Velles), famous for its legumes, and crossed by the Ruta de la Plata as it wends its way towards Zamora. To the south are Arapiles and Mozarbez. Ledesma is another town of historic interest and monuments, framed by the pastureland of Salamanca province.

Day 5: Thursday 

HIGHLIGHTS:  Zamora is located right in the heart of the Ruta del Plata, and is known as the capital of the Romanesque style due to the great many monuments lining its streets and squares, including the lovely cathedral. Very close to the city you will find towns of great historical value, such as La Hiniesta. Places of interest include the cathedral, the medieval quarter, San Isidro Church, San Pedro y San Ildefonso Church, Encarnación Hospital, and Los Momos Palace. Churches, palaces, ancient noble homes, convents and monasteries and medieval streets all await your discovery.

Day 6: Friday

 

HIGHLIGHTS:  Benavente is our next stop along this route. This is a strategic location, as the town sits where the fertile Esla, Órbigo and Tera valleys come together. Mota Castle is home to the Parador, and by all accounts, it appears that the castle was built during the repopulation of the city by Fernando II in the 12th century. There is much to see and enjoy here, including Sta. María de Azogue Chruch, San Juan del Mercado Church, and La Piedad Hospital, built in the 16th century for pilgrims on the route to Santiago de Compostela.

Day 7: Saturday

HIGHLIGHTS:  Leon is a city of incomparable beauty, closely linked to the Camino de Santiago (the Way of Saint James, a pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela). It offers any number of places of interest, including the stunning Sta. Maria Cathedral famed for it´s incredible stained glass windows, San Isidoro Basilica and the Hostal de San Marcos now the Parador hotel itself. The palace of the Guzman family, Botines House by renowned catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, San Marcelo Church, Sta. Ana Church, the Main Square, and Roman walls are just a sample of the important sights in this city.
