La Robla is the first developed city outside of León. In addition to an albergue, there are also hostals and pensions.

Altitude:

The Road: 

Keep the main road (the N-630) to your left as you pass through Puente de Alba, and at the end of town turn right to follow the old national road which remains tree lined. Pass under the high-speed railway and enter Peredilla.

Altitude: 
983
The Road: 

On the way out of Peredilla, BEFORE you arrive at the road sign indicating the end of town, the camino turns left along a gravel path and heads towards an underpass for the adjacent roadway. It then meets the rail track and turns to the right. It follows this path to the chapel of Buen Suceso....

Altitude:

The Road: 

The camino climbs only slightly into Nocedo de Gordon. It does not go into town, but rather take the first right just at the start of town to follow along the valley. The river will remain on your right-hand side until you cross over it and into La Pola de Gordon.

The plaza mayor of La Pola off the camino to your right after crossing the bridge over the river. Most pilgrims continue the additional 6km to the albergue in Buiza, but if you wish to stay in La Pola, you have a few options. Stock up on food here as there is none available for the next couple...

The Road: 

When leaving town, keep to your left. The camino does not follow the main road. Instead, it turns off where the guardrail begins and passes through an industrial park. It then crosses the river and enters Beberino.

Altitude:

The Road: 

In Beberino the camino begins to follow a different river, this time the Casares. Pass through town along the road and keep an eye open for a turn to your right along another road which is signposted as 'Folledo' and 'Buiza'.

Buiza is your last stop before beginning the more mountainous middle section of the camino. If you plan to stay here, you are advised to bring food as the only bar in town has irregular opening hours. The albergue is in an old school building at the entrance to town and there is a fountain in...

The Road: 

From Buiza the camino ascends to the Alto de San Antón, and before it the Forcadas de San Anton (forcadas translates to pitchfork, an aptly descriptive word for the jagged rock formations). It is about 2.5km up to the pitchfork. The descent is much more...

Poladura is a small town. The albergue is located in the former schoolhouse, and the only place to eat is the Posada El Embrujo.

The Road: 

A note of caution on the next section is in order. Between Poladura and the Puerto de Pajares, the camino climbs over 350m through mountainous terrain. It is a stretch of 8km before Arbas and the first sign of civilization. Along the way, the path, and the signs indicating the path are often...
