The Capilla de Santa Marina de Buspol is the only thing of note in Buspol. The weather here is frequently shrouded in a rainy mist which obscures views of the embalse (reservoir) below.

Hinweis: 

At the sharp curve in the road in Buspol, the camino finally leaves the road in favor of a mountain track.

NOTE: It is almost entirely downhill to the dam of the reservoir, a descent of over 750m and often very steep. Furthermore, the trail crisscrosses several...

Bar and Restaurant 1km from the dam on the way back up.

Geschichte: 

The hydroelectric dam here was built in the early 1950. The abandoned concrete structures on the north side of the dam are leftovers from its construction, which required that most of the materials (primarily the concrete) be produced on site.

Wegbeschreibung: 

What goes down must go up, in this case it is about 300m back up to Grandas de Salime. It is mostly, but not entirely, along the road. Along the way is a scenic overlook (about 2km from the dam). Shortly after the most severe turn in the road (a 180 degree bend) the camino turns left to...

Wegbeschreibung: 

Keep on the road beyond the albergue for 2.3km. At that point the camino leaves the N-634 for a side road in the direction of Moratín.

The large plantations to your left as you walk through Las Casas are often mistaken for vineyards. In fact grapes grow poorly in this climate and these are kiwi.

Hinweis: 

After crossing the bridge into Cornellana there is a sign indicating a trail to your left. This option takes you directly to the albergue without first passing through town. It is the same distance.

Wegbeschreibung: 

There is a large traffic interchange at the end of Las Casas, in the hamlet of La Rodriga. The camino keeps to the left and towards the river. In the summer months there may be a bar open in the park alongside the river.
