Nearly 1000km long, the Camino mozarabe, or Via de la Plata as it is also known, starts in Seville or Granada and leads north and then north-west along paths and old tracks through the historic towns and varied scenery of Extremadura, Castille and Galicia. Most of it is also suitable for mountain (but not touring) bikes. This is the only published guide to include the Granada?Mérida section of the route.

As well as giving directions for walking the route (with notes for cyclists in sections where riding it is impracticable) the book provides information on the history of the pilgrimage, places of interest along the way and the availability of practical facilities such as shops, bars, restaurants and accommodation. One appendix provides walking instructions for the continuation from Santiago to Finisterre (75km) whilst others contain a summary of Santiago and other pilgrim references along the way, a list of suggestions for further reading and a glossary of geographical and other useful items.
