The Vía Verde de Plasencia leaves from the San Lázaro tunnel, which is located a few meters from the Gutiérrez Mellado roundabout in the San Miguel neighborhood, through which you have to exit in the direction of the northern ring road or the Ruta de la Plata highway. As soon as you cross the eyes of the underground tunnel, on the right there is a small but steep slope that leads to the access to the greenway. The San Lázaro tunnel, yes, has opening and closing hours. For now, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., although it will change depending on the hours of sunshine.
The greenway of Plasencia begins in a passageway of almost 200 meters, illuminated and rehabilitated after 18 years closed to lime and song. It is to cross it and enter a paradise for walkers, cyclists and runners.
As it follows the route of the old train, the itinerary is very accessible with gentle slopes that make it ideal for all kinds of people. The technical profile and other information of interest of the Ruta de la Plata Greenway Nature Trail can be consulted on the greenways website.
