Baños derives its name from the abundance of water that flows from the surrounding mountains, and from the thermal waters that spring up here. If you fancy a splurge, head to the balneario for a soak. The mountains are a blessing for the locals, who enjoy a temperate climate because of...

Il cammino: 

From Baños the camino begins its climb to the Alto de Béjar. It begins along the old Roman road on the east side of town, avoid the temptation/mistake of following the N-630 (though that will get you to both the alto and the Albergue El Solitario). The climb to the alto is...

The camino turns left and away from the road at the entrance to Peñacaballera, if you got distracted and ended up at a roundabout you went too far. From the alto the camino begins its winding descent to La Calzada de Béjar, crossing along the way the Puente de la Malena (4km...

Once an important frontier outpost, La Calzada has seen 90% of its population vanish in the last century. The albergue receives praise from most pilgrims, and several homes have been converted into lovely rural accommodation.

Mostly straight and mostly flat walking all the way to Valverde de Valdelacasa.

Salamanca is, without any exaggeration, the single most spectacular Renaissance city in all of Spain. The old town is built almost exclusively of locally sourced sandstone, and in the bright Castillian sunlight it shines like gold. It has two Cathedrals (old and new), conjoined due to a...

Waymarks in and out of Salamanca are scant, there are some bronze shells embedded in the ground but they are not so easy to find. Fortunately, the way out is a nearly straight course due north.

The camino between Villanueva de Campeán is almost entirely through the countryside along well-marked paths. The entrance to Zamora is short, and the first real glimpse you will get of the riverside city is from the mighty Río Duero.

Zamora is world famous for its concentration of Romanesque architecture (and art). There are 14 Romanesque churches in the old town alone and countless more in the surrounding region. 

To top it all off it has the Catedral de San Salvador and the Castillo de Zamora,...

Attenzione: 

NOTE: There is a separate set of arrows which direct the way along the Camino Portugués de la Plata, a route which turns westward and into Portugal. At the same time, the Camino de Levante (from Valencia) enters Zamora from the east.

The camino through the old town crosses the Plaza Mayor onto Calle da las Costanillas which it follows downhill to the first roundabout. It crosses directly over the roundabout and keeps to this road as it passes through the next large intersection (passing the Iglesia de San...

Overlooking the village from the other side of the reservoir is the Ermita de la Virgen del Castillo. The municipal albergue is located along the N-630 before the camino gets to the village, and the Hostal Asturiano is just a bit further south of it.

Il cammino: 

The way from Montamarta crosses part of the reservoir here, which may be impassible when the water is high. When that is the case simply take the N-630 over the water.

In 4.5km the camino crosses over the A-66 (see note below regarding optional road route). It then crosses a few...
