On the southern edge of town (on your right as you enter) stands the once majestic Convento Franciscano de Nuestra Señora del Soto. It is a declared ruin now so you cannot see the inside, but the exterior retains a certain charm.

The Road: 

The camino between Villanueva de Campeán is almost entirely through the countryside along well-marked paths. The entrance to Zamora is short, and the first real glimpse you will get of the riverside city is from the mighty Río Duero.

Zamora is world famous for its concentration of Romanesque architecture (and art). There are 14 Romanesque churches in the old town alone and countless more in the surrounding region. 

To top it all off it has the Catedral de San Salvador and the Castillo de Zamora,...

Notice: 

NOTE: There is a separate set of arrows which direct the way along the Camino Portugués de la Plata, a route which turns westward and into Portugal. At the same time, the Camino de Levante (from Valencia) enters Zamora from the east.

Overlooking the village from the other side of the reservoir is the Ermita de la Virgen del Castillo. The municipal albergue is located along the N-630 before the camino gets to the village, and the Hostal Asturiano is just a bit further south of it.

The Road: 

The way from Montamarta crosses part of the reservoir here, which may be impassible when the water is high. When that is the case simply take the N-630 over the water.

In 4.5km the camino crosses over the A-66 (see note below regarding optional road route). It then crosses a few...
