If you're planning to go on the Vía de la Plata, you'll most likely see a lot of sunny and warm days, but also some rain. This path goes through different areas like Sevilla, Guillena, and Almadén de la Plata, and each has its own weather.

At the start of the trip in Sevilla, in the south, it's usually sunny and the temperature is between 12°C and 25°C. In Guillena, it's similar but with a bit more rain.

As you go to areas in the middle of the route, like Mérida and Alcuéscar, you'll still see a lot of sunshine but with some rain every now and then. The temperature is usually between 13°C and 26°C. The temperature might get a bit lower, between 11°C - 24°C, in areas like Cáceres and Embalse de Alcántara, but it's still mostly sunny with some cloudy days.

The weather changes more in the north. In Silleda and Outeiro, it rains quite a lot, including some heavy rain. It's more humid and the temperature is usually between 10°C and 20°C. Also, in Santiago de Compostela, where you'll finish your trip, there's some rain, and sometimes it can be quite heavy.

All in all, during your trip, it's going to be around 7°C - 26°C. It will get cooler as you keep going north. You'll see a lot of sunny and slightly cloudy days, but there will be more cloudy and rainy days when you get closer to the end of the Vía de la Plata.
