"In each of us dwells a wanderer, a gypsy, a pilgrim. What matters most on your journey is how deeply you see, how attentively you hear, how richly the encounters are felt in your heart." ~ Phil Coustineau, from his book, "The Art of Pilgrimage."
Our day eleven on the Camino Sanabrés from Vilar de Barrio to Xunqueira de Ambía was another rain-soaked day, however, this gentle rain was manageable.
Our day ten on the Camino Sanabres, from A Laza to Vilar de Barrio was another fabulous day of walking on beautiful mountain paths, and very little pavement.
Our day nine on the Camino Sanabres from A Venda da Capela to A Laza, was a joyous walk on high mountain paths and roads, with stunning views.
Our day eight on the Camino Sanabres from A Gudiña to A Venda da Capela was very short and not-so-sweet in the wind and pouring rain, ending in a taxi ride.
Our day seven on the Camino Sanabres from Lubián to A Gudiña was a long and strenuous walk, almost entirely on forest paths!
Our day six on the Camino Sanabrés from Puebla de Sanabria to Lubián was a rain-soaked day, for the most part on the highway, the N-525.
Our day five on the Camino Sanabres from Entrepeñas to Puebla de Sanabria was a day filled with anticipation of our arrival in the wonderful and highly touristed town.
Our day four on the Camino Sanabrés from Rionegro del Puente to Entrepeñas was a short and sweet day, designed to take advantage of several shorter days.
Day three, Camino Sanabrés, from Santa Marta de Tera to Rionegro del Puente is essentially a gentle and steady climb through increasingly deciduous forests.
Our day two on the Camino Sanabres from Tábara to Santa Marta de Tera was perhaps the most historically important day for the pilgrimage traveler.
Our day one on the Camino Sanabres from Granja de Moreruela to Tábara was another long, hot one, with an optional 4.0 km round trip to the Monasterio Moreruela.
The Camino Sanabrés is a popular alternative to the traditional Vía de la Plata. The route leaves Granja de Moreruela, towards Ourense in a NW direction.
Our day five on the Vía de la Plata, from Montamarta to Granja de Moreruela was yet another day of undulating gravel lanes, taking the pilgrim through fields.
Our day four on the Vía de la Plata from Zamora to Montamarta was short and sweet.
Zamora is an incredible place to take a rest day on your Vía de la Plata. It is smaller and more intimate than Salamanca, which we had seen three days prior.

Our recommendation for the best trekking pole. Carbon fiber construction (not aluminum) makes them ultra lightweight. Hide your poles in your pack from potential thieves , before you get to your albergue! (See more of our gear recommendations!)
