Bar Central is the bar most likely to be open, so don't pass it hoping for another.  There is also a small shop in town for basic food supplies. Another option for food is either in León or at the cafeteria El Palacete located on your left less than 1km outside of León. The...

The Road: 

The camino follows along the main road right up to the end where it turns to dirt. It is well marked. On the way to the next village, the camino passes the Fuente de Villabura, a fountain and rest area for pilgrims.

La Robla is the first developed city outside of León. In addition to an albergue, there are also hostals and pensions. Avoid those at the entrance to town just over the foot bridge, and continue into the center. There is also a tourist information office near the ayuntamiento if you need a stamp...

The Road: 

The camino from La Robla, at least once you get to the end of town, is along a pleasant path adjacent to the River. It passes a restored aqueduct.

León is now a fully modernized city home to more than half of the population in the province. Like Burgos behind and Santiago ahead, it is worthy of more time than the average pilgrim spends here. To explore in full would take several days, to cover the basics at least two. If you are keen to...

The Road: 

Leave León by way of the road behind the Parador San Marcos. While facing the Parador cross the square to your right and follow the path around the building. Arrows dedicated to the San Salvador route will appear, as well as a fairly unique mojon.

The Camino de San Salvador stretches from Leon, in the central meseta, to Oviedo in Asturias. It covers 122km of terrain which varies between gently rolling hills and intense mountain climbing. The first 1/3 follows the Rio Bernesga North out of Leon, and apart from some moderate climbs remains...
