The camino through Puebla follows a path which skips entirely the oldest and best parts. It is a short climb to the top and is recommended, especially for a visit to the Castillo de los Condes de Benavente (with museum).

The Road: 

If you stay at any of the accommodation options on the south side of the city be sure to retrace your steps to get back to the camino, it would be easy to confuse the southern road with the northern one.

The camino follows the road north out of town but soon picks up a trail (before you...

These days Requejo is the defacto heavy truck stop for the nearby AVE construction, with a number of restaurants along the road.

Notice: 

AVE ALERT. The camino has largely avoided any serious disruption because of the AVE construction. However, the mountains of Galicia make for a much more complicated job and the camino has been rerouted in several places. There are plenty of signs indicating the detours, which...

The Road: 

It is uphill from here to the Portela de la Canda. From Requejo the camino follows a narrow country road adjacent to the river. This road soon ends at another and straight ahead is the OLD camino. DO NOT follow it, rather heed the detour signs telling you to turn right and up the...

The bar in town is located in the Hotel along the road.

The Road: 

The camino leaves Padornelo along the N-525 to a junction. Here there are signs indicating a detour (the old way turned to the right and went through Aciberos). Now the camino keeps on the road to pass over the A-52 and then a short distance later right back under it. It then turns...

The albergue is not well marked but is one of the first buildings in town. The rest of the services are along the main road. For the forseeable future this otherwise sleepy village is kept a bit lively with the business brought by the AVE construction crew.

The Road: 

The camino follows the secondary road out of Lubián, downhill from the main road. It turns right after a few twists in the road to follow the signs to the Santuario de La Tuiza. It descends to pass under the A-52 and pass by the Santuario. From here it climbs to the ...

The Road: 

The camino emerges onto a paved road at the alto and almost immediately leaves it, turning left to descend along another track. It passes through the hamlet of A Canda (1.4km) and soon begins its descent into Vilavella, passing beneath a railway line along the way.
