Some pilgrims opt to split this long walking day into two, making a stop in the city of Zafra, while those who want to shorten the time of the Via de la Plata will go on to Villafranca de los Barros or to the La Almazare albergue right before it. This way, the camino will be about 39 kilometers long but it is doable with a little bit of planning. See below the two maps showing all the stops in two stages.
