The Levante Way

The Levante Way is a Jacobean route that crosses the Iberian Peninsula from east to west, starting from the Mediterranean coast, in the city of Valencia and concluding in Zamora, where it joins with the Via de la Plata, which comes from Andalusia. It is one of the most extensive routes that a pilgrim can travel in the Peninsula, through five autonomous communities, with 27 stages and more than 800 kilometers behind.

The Levante Way: crossing the peninsula from east to west

Despite the great distance between Santiago de Compostela and the city of Valencia, the capital of the Turia has kept its own Jacobean past since medieval times. Valencia, an important Levantine port, was a landing place for pilgrims coming from other regions of Europe with the aim of starting their Jacobean journey here to meet in Santiago with the remains of the Apostle. This migratory movement benefited from the fact that several pilgrims' hospitals in the city were established in the 14th century, also used by pilgrims who embarked on the coast to Rome or Jerusalem.

Many centuries later, to this centenary route that leaves from Valencia we know it like the The Levante Way, one of the alternatives that we will find if we want to peregrinate to Santiago from the Mediterranean coast next to the Route of the Wool, the Camino de Castellón, The Camino de Levante runs through four autonomous communities (Comunidad Valenciana, Castilla-La Mancha, Comunidad de Madrid, Castilla y León) to its connection with the Via de la Plata in Zamora, to continue through Galicia to Santiago de Compostela.

Walking the The Levante Way to Santiago means a long journey of more than 800 kilometers throughout the Spanish geography from east to west, crossing the peninsula and cutting it in half, but also an unforgettable Jacobean experience that can be traversed according to our Possibilities and condition. The Levante Way is signposted in its entirety thanks to the invaluable non-profit work of the Association of Friends of the Camino de Santiago Valencian Community, who also share with the pilgrim information of great utility on this the Jacobean route.

Mi muger y yo lo han hecho el 1 Avril de 2016 y llegamos a Fisterre el 6 de junio tras Compostela y Muxia. Saliendo de Xábia (Jávea) en el mar Mediterráneo y tras un ruta jacobeo alternativa que se llama camino de Alba y se une con el camino de levante. Preciosa , estar solo todo los días . Solamente hemos encontrado 4 peligrinos hasta la ciudad de Zamora. Entonces perfecta por gente que buscan la solutud en sucamino. Preciosa pero la tienda de campana a veces es muy práctico, y te puedes dormir en paysages muy preciosas.
