The Road: 

You will first make sight of Acebo (from holly, as in the hardy evergreen shrub) as you descend from above. It is a single road town and typical of the area.

Altitude:

The Road: 

The camino from Calzadilla once went directly to Mansilla de la Mulas, bypassing Reliegos. The route proved to be less desirable than going first to Reliegos which is close enough. The split occurs 1km before arriving at Reliegos and there may still exist...

The bar and albergue are both in the town of Pradela, which sits just off the camino before it descends towards Trabadelo. You do not need to go into town unless you are after a drink or a bed. Otherwise follow the arrows to keep along the camino.  The forests here are thick with...

The Road: 

Pradela sits on the hillside just above Trabadelo. The descent along the trail is quick and will deliver you into a side street half way into town; it is also possible to follow the road for a longer but less steep journey.

When you get to the Basilica de la Virgen del Camino you will cross the busy road and continue on a small access road. In 300m you are presented with the choice between two routes. The painting of yellow arrows here is confusing, and there is zero official signage to indicate your options...

‌Detour from Murias to Maragato village of Castrillo de los Polvazares

With the recent addition of albergues in Castrillo this deviation has become popular for more than just its cultural itinerary. It is a fully restored Maragato village well worth a visit and...

Shortly after leaving Pieros the camino splits near a set of power lines. The detour through Valtuille, favored for its safety and scenery, is to the right. The road route continues straight for several kilometers before turning off onto a dirt track. This track will rejoin the ...

‌ALTERNATE ROUTE from Villafranca to TRABADELO, VIA PRADELA +1.7km

If you fancy a climb and a not too long detour, look for a narrow path on your right immediately after crossing the bridge. It looks like a hastily poured concrete drive and starts off quite steep. The way offers...

Svoltate verso la discesa se siete a piedi o continuate sulla strada se siete in bici.

Leaving Sahagún cross over the río Cea. The camino becomes something of a confusion just short of Calzada de Coto, which lies to the north of the A-231. You will find yourself standing at a large highway interchange (4.4km from Sahagún) with a block bus-stop and very...

Valdeviejas sits adjacent to the camino and most pilgrims never go into town. There is not much cause to do so unless you plan to stay at the municipal albergue here.
