→ 1.70 → Pieros → 2.40km → Valtuille de Arriba

To end of camino

The Iglesia de San Martín de Tours still bears the inscription indicating that it was commissioned by the bishop of Astorga. San Martín of Tours was, prior to the popularization of Santiago (and his battle at Clavijo), the patron saint of most of the peninsula.

The Road

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 Valtuille route.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

The road route follows a stream much of the way. No effort has been made to bring the route along the stream instead of along a road. This is, to say the least, thoughtless.
