Autovía de la Plata
This A-66 49Km section between Benavente and Zamora represents the end of the axis that connects Gijón and Sevilla, the end of the historic Ruta de la Plata. The highway is divided in three intervals: section A-6, between Castrogonzalo and Santovenia; the second, between Santovenia and Fontanillas de Castro; and the third, between Fontanillas de Castro and Zamora.
A-66 offers a reduction of 15 min. in traveling time between Benavente and Zamora. This is because of its payment is for availability method, that is, without charging tolls.
