Information

Today we will continue walking from Torremejía to the magnificent city of Emérita augusta, founded by the Romans long before the existence of the Camino de Santiago, which we know today as Mérida. The stage of just about sixteen kilometres will be completely flat and of little interest until we reach the Guadiana riverbed, where the Roman city will welcome us at the end of the stage.

 

Map

We leave behind the town of Torremejía from a dirt road parallel to the N-630, the road that connects the cities of Seville and Merida on your route by car, or by the same shoulder of the road, due to the sections of the path that are not very practicable. We will continue until we cross the EX-105, and we will leave the N-630 to enter a dirt road that moves away from the roads and brings us closer, little by little, to the Vega del Guadiana, where the entrance to Mérida awaits us through the Bellavista neighbourhood, through which we will cross to get to the
Roman Bridge
. We will then cross the Guadiana River to reach the Plaza España, and thus finish today’s stage.

To consider

Once we leave the town of Torremejía behind us, today’s route will be simple and a little monotonous, but it will take us after a little more than fifteen kilometres to Mérida, a city with a lot to see. That is why we recommend you not to slow down and arrive early to the city of Extremadura, in order to make the most of all the time possible in the tourist enclave that is Emérita Augusta. We take this opportunity to remind you that, although the road is not very busy, we must be careful when walking on the shoulders.
