Baños derives its name from the abundance of water that flows from the surrounding mountains, and from the thermal waters that spring up here. If you fancy a splurge, head to the balneario for a soak. The mountains are a blessing for the locals, who enjoy a temperate climate...

The Road: 

From Baños the camino begins its climb to the Alto de Béjar. It begins along the old Roman road on the east side of town, avoid the temptation/mistake of following the N-630 (though that will get you to both the alto and the Albergue El Solitario). The climb to the alto is...

Note that some guides indicate an albergue here (El Acebo); the albergue has been closed.

The Road: 

The camino turns left and away from the road at the entrance to Peñacaballera, if you got distracted and ended up at a roundabout you went too far. From the alto the camino begins its winding descent to La Calzada de Béjar, crossing along the way the Puente de la Malena (4km...

Once an important frontier outpost, La Calzada has seen 90% of its population vanish in the last century. The albergue receives praise from most pilgrims, and several homes have been converted into lovely rural accommodation.

The Road: 

Mostly straight and mostly flat walking all the way to Valverde de Valdelacasa.

The camino leaves Valdelacasa along a paved road, and in 2km it leaves the road in favor of a dirt track to the left. The signage here is not great and might have you believe that you should stay on the road; it is OK if you do, both ways will get you to Fuenterroble de Salvatierra...

Salamanca is, without any exaggeration, the single most spectacular Renaissance city in all of Spain. The old town is built almost exclusively of locally sourced sandstone, and in the bright Castillian sunlight it shines like gold. It has two Cathedrals (old and new), conjoined due to a...

The Road: 

Waymarks in and out of Salamanca are scant, there are some bronze shells embedded in the ground but they are not so easy to find. Fortunately, the way out is a nearly straight course due north.

From the Plaza Mayor exit through the center gate of the main facade, onto ...
