★ Trail guide to the VDLP (Galician variant) ★

Spain's Vía de la Plata is the longest pilgrimage route to Compostela, stretching 1,000 kilometers from Sevilla to Santiago. This guide, through more than 350 entries, +3,300 photos and more than a dozen video clips, covers the entire route via the Galicia variant, which branches west from the VDLP after Granja de Moreruela.

In addition to learning a little about the cities, towns and points of interest along the way, the app provides in-depth information on the trail conditions you'll encounter: elevation, distance, trail surface, scenery, points of interest and signage. A special category highlights sections that can be confusing, noting (through text and photos) exactly where to turn so you won't get lost.

★ About the Author ★

I've been writing active travel stories for years, and recently ran the last 109 kilometers of the Vía de la Plata for a newspaper assignment. The Camino captivated me and stole my heart. I knew I had to return, do the whole thing, and create a trail guide so everyone could experience this beautiful, uncrowded trail and come to love it as much as I do. If you use this app, you shouldn't get lost (I already did that for you), and you'll know, for the most part, what you'll encounter every day.

    Good commentary, but references to the map are meaningless as the map does not zoom. Also, photos appear in a haphazard order that is unrelated to the stage that is being viewed.

    I've spent hours trying to make space to install this app but it is just too big. So I have paid for it but am now outside the refund window, so that money was for nothing. :-(
