Campomanes is the return to civilization that you may be looking for. Restaurants, bars, and private accommodation are to be found here. The town sits between the old National road and the fancy new autopista. Geographically speaking it lies at the North end of convergence of two valleys.
The camino will continue straight through the town turns right to cross the N-630 and a bit later the river. Just past the river it doubles back on itself to the left to follow a road along the river and to the Iglesia de Santa Cristina de Lena.
ALTERNATIVE: Some choose to keep straight through the town to pass the Palacio de Revillagigedo. From the point the camino crosses and turns right to follow the road to Vega del Rey. There are no services in Vega and the other route allows you to visit Santa Cristina de Lena.
