To end of camino

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 little signage to point the way. Distances indicated below are from Sahagún to Reliegos, though the Via Trajana can also bypass Relíegos and go directly to Mansilla de las Mulas without adding any distance The two options rejoin in Reliegos, or Mansilla de las Mulas.

The Camino Real - 30.3

Carry on straight here to follow the route via Bercianos and El Burgo Ranero.

The Via Trajana - 30.9

Turn right here (north) and cross over the bridge to follow the old Roman Road through Calzada de Coto and Calzadilla de los Hermanillos.



I don’t know about the other route, but it can hardly be as bad as the via trajana. It is one straight path, full of stones and boulders that are very hard underfoot. Particularly the first 13 kilometers from Calzada del Coto. Personally I would choose to avoid it.
