Part 1 Coast to Cordoba
Arrival Day: 22nd April 2018 - Departure Day 29th April 2018
Part 2 The Silver Route to Salamanca (NO PLACES LEFT)
Arrival Day: 1/05/2018 - Departure Day: 9/05/2018
Walk the highlights of the Camino Mozárabe route from Málaga to Córdoba. Enjoy a journey through the history of Spain, when the cultures of three religions – Jews, Christians and Muslims – lived in relative harmony, celebrating each others' differences with tolerance and learning.
Leave the Universal city of Cordoba and venture into some of the most isolated regions of Spain, through wild Dehesa landscape, brimming with holm oak and cork trees - the natural habitat of the Iberian pigs that feed from their acorns. The pilgrimage route crosses the ancient towns of Mérida and Cáceres, joining up with La Ruta de la Plata, the route that leaves from Seville. These two paths intertwine and make their way into the glorious city of Salamanca which cradles the oldest university in the country and abounds in fascinating history and architecture.
Erin and Manni met on a tour that Manni was guiding, back in 2015. They enjoyed an immediate bond and deep understanding and Erin fell under the spell of Andalucia. As TOMA & COE were in the early stages of planning their Camino Mozarabe pilgrimage through the heartlands of Andalucia, Erin captured the dream and suggested they design a unique Yoga and Meditative Pilgrimage. The seed was sown and in 2017, the idea became a reality for 11 very special ladies from the USA. Erin’s unique understanding of the human spirit, with its strengths, weaknesses, stresses and accomplishments, together with Manni and Pablo’s guiding prowess culminated in an experience that still lingers with everyone who was involved. One of our pilgrims named it “The best travel experience of my lifetime” and we have to agree. It is a sublime balance of walking ancient paths with the meaningful back drop of a medieval pilgrimage, set among wondrous Andalucian vistas, olive groves and lost white villages. Add to that, Erin’s masterly guidance in her daily meditative Yoga sessions, boutique hotels, typical Andalucian cuisine, delicious local wines and the usual TOMA & COE touches and what do you have?
