→ 4.90 → Santibáñez de Valdeiglesias → 7.70km → San Justo de la Vega
The church is often locked up, but if you ask around for the key the locals are always happy to unlock it for pilgrims.
Between here and San Justo de la Vega there are no facilities, but a small kiosk run by pilgrims operates during the busier seasons. Just before the steep descent into San Justo de la Vega is the Cruceiro de Santo Toribio overlooking Astorga in the distance. From this vantage point, you can see the Cathedral of Astorga and the string of towns that dot the camino as it crosses the mountains ahead.
