Bemposta represents a curious turn in the camino from what would be a natural course north. After crossing the N1, you climb to the historical center of town and then back down to the N1 by passing underneath a house (well marked). At the N1, you cross back over. The road turns right (now heading north) and through a mixture of residential and industrial buildings in the area known as Besteiros/Travanca.
This area is heavily developed and although traffic is not excessive it is seldom aware of pilgrim traffic. Keep your wits about you.
