There is a municipal albergue down the road, it is a wonderful new building with an excellent view but also with a history of problems related to its construction which make it hard to predict if it will be open for the season. It is included here for the sake of completeness, but you are...

The Road: 

Rejoin the camino at the road, making sure to follow the trail upwards and not the road downwards.

Take some time to explore the well-preserved walls of Galisteo, there are a few shops and a bank within them but the highlight is the ability to walk atop them; an adventure which sounds simple enough but which is not for anyone with wobbly legs or a fear of falling from high places....

The Road: 

From the albergue return to the main road and exit town by walking uphill past the walled part of town, keeping it to your right. Arrows bring you to the Río Jerte (1.7km) and the Puente Romano which crosses it.

From the river, the camino climbs to a pair of roundabouts...

Carcaboso can be a bit confusing to find your way around, the village is a knot of narrow streets. From where the camino arrives, head left along the main road for most services. Return to the camino where you left it or otherwise find your way to the Iglesia de Santiago, there are...

The Road: 

The way from Carcaboso to Ventaquemada is a return to nature with a few options along the way. The first turn to pay attention to is less than a kilometer out of town where your natural tendency is to always keep on a straight path; the camino turns right at a sign for Finca...

Once a Roman City, Cáparra is now and open-air museum that invites you to explore. It is the location of the only remaining quadrifrons gate on the Iberian peninsula, a testament to this location being built at a crossroads. A visitor center and bathroom are at the public entrance...

Notice: 

After periods of heavy rain, inquire about the route ahead. Several river crossings are made difficult by high water. In extreme cases, a detour can be made from Oliva de Plasencia to Villar de Placencia located on the other side of the N-630. 

The Road: 

8.4km from Cáparra you will find markings indicating a detour to your right. They point the way to Jarilla (2km) where there is accommodation.

Altitude:

The Road: 

From Jarilla you do not need to retrace your steps. Follow the N-630 and you will rejoin the camino.

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...
