A nice, quiet town along the camino. It has a small shop of the typical “lights off, but we carry everything” Spanish variety, a bar which does full meals and has a wifi signal just outside their door where some locals sit with their laptops, and a pharmacy as well.
One Casa Rural in town.
Continue out of town in the same direction you walked in and resist the temptation to take a small and well-manicured path of fitness machines on your left-hand side. Just stay on the road and walk around the bend. It is just after that bend that you take a dirt track up and to your left. A short climb later the trail will descend again. The first road you come upon will take you to Carucedo, which is not technically on the camino.
Instead, continue on straight and turn left on the next road (which takes drivers to Las Medulas). A short distance along the road the camino once again diverts into a more scenic landscape of chestnut groves.
