The Silver Route
9 Days Self-Drive Program
Along the Silver Route
North of Spain – Old Castile – Extremadura – Andalusia
A true jewel in all senses of the word. The Roman´s followed this route for over 300 years in transporting the gold and silver extracted from the mines of the north of the peninsula. Today, it is a living testimony to the history of the cultures and civilizations of the Iberian Peninsula.
During Roman times a route was opened connecting the Silver mines of the North of Spain (Asturias and Leon) with old Italica via the Roman city of Merida.
It runs parallel the Portuguese frontier and crosses the Camino de Santiago route with its Romanesque churches and cathedrals, its gastronomy and the wines from the Ribera del Duero.
On the way from Salamanca, site of the first university in Europe to Mérdia in Extremadura, a series of Roman monuments, renaissance palaces, old universities ad roman theatres can be seen.
600 kilometres of stone structures from the north to the white houses of the south, from Old Castile, Extremadura, the land of explores and Andalusia, an Arabic oasis: an impressive journey. Its wealth in culture justifies the name the “Silver Route”.
