Guide to Bird Watching on the Vía de la Plata Route (Silver Route)

 Guide to Bird Watching on the Vía de la Plata Route (Silver Route)Are you a bird-watching enthusiast? The Vía de la Plata Route with a length of 800km, which crosses the Iberian Peninsula from north to south and back again, has edited a bird-watching guide for all the regions along this route. It contains a selection of eight bird-watching routes representing a large variety of existing ecosystems, allowing you to see some of the most emblematic species.
The proposed routes usually take between one or two days to complete and are accessible for all types of public. We recommend you read the recommendations in the guide, to obtain maximum pleasure from watching the birds and take advantage of what the route has to offer.
The “Costa de Gijón” Route (Gijón Coastal Route) contains some of the marine bird viewing points in the city, which are among the best in Spain.
The birds can be observed relatively close up on the headlands of Cabo San Lorenzo and Cabo Torres. For this reason, we propose a walk that starts out at Cabo San Lorenzo and passes by several beaches, headlands and cliffs during its seven kilometres, ending at Parque de Isabel La Católica. To complete it, we recommend a visit to Cabo Torres, which has fantastic views of the city of Gijón, its port and the sea.
A tip? Download this guide and enjoy the walk, and the birds, and don’t forget your camera!
