The pride of Santa Marta is the Romanesque Iglesia de Santa Marta and it is well worth a visit. Around the back of the church, beside the doorway, is the oldest known sculpture in stone of the Apostol Santiago. If you happen to be passing by on March 21st, or on September 23rd, join the crowd to observe the illumination of a carved capital as the sun aligns with an opening in the apse.

The Road: 

The camino ahead turns westwards and follows closely the Río Tera as it runs between a string of villages. Shortly before Calzadilla de Tera the camino leaves the road to avoid a blind curve in the road.

The camino returns to a rural trail until it reaches the Río Negro, just short of reaching the N-525. It crosses the river on a small pedestrian bridge and then crosses under the N-525 to enter Rionegro.

The Iglesia de la Asunción, located near the private albergue, is just so-so. The bell tower, on the other hand, is something special indeed; it was built as a lookout by the Knights Templar in the last half of the 13th century.

The Road: 

As the camino gets deeper into the region of Zamora, and soon into Galicia, the villages get closer together and smaller. Few offer any services. The camino follows near the N-525 for a short distance before turning south to cross the motorway and the AVE line. After crossing it...

The Road: 

When the camino leaves Asturianos if picks up the N-525 but leaves it soon after to follow a paved road that turns to the right. DO NOT miss this turn, or the one just after which removes you from the road entirely. It is a country path all the way to Palacios de Sanabria.

The camino through Puebla follows a path which skips entirely the oldest and best parts.  It is a short climb to the top and is recommended, especially for a visit to the Castillo de los Condes de Benavente (with museum).

The Road: 

If you stay at any of the accommodation options on the south side of the city be sure to retrace your steps to get back to the camino, it would be easy to confuse the southern road with the northern one.

The camino follows the road north out of town but soon picks up a trail (before you...

These days Requejo is the defacto heavy truck stop for the nearby AVE construction, with a number of restaurants along the road.

Notice: 

AVE ALERT. The camino has largely avoided any serious disruption because of the AVE construction. However, the mountains of Galicia make for a much more complicated job and the camino has been rerouted in several places. There are plenty of signs indicating the detours, which...

The Road: 

It is uphill from here to the Portela de la Canda. From Requejo the camino follows a narrow country road adjacent to the river. This road soon ends at another and straight ahead is the OLD camino. DO NOT follow it, rather heed the detour signs telling you to turn right and up the...

The albergue is not well marked but is one of the first buildings in town. The rest of the services are along the main road. For the forseeable future this otherwise sleepy village is kept a bit lively with the business brought by the AVE construction crew.

The Road: 

The camino follows the secondary road out of Lubián, downhill from the main road. It turns right after a few twists in the road to follow the signs to the Santuario de La Tuiza. It descends to pass under the A-52 and pass by the Santuario. From here it climbs to the ...
