Astorga to Rabanal del Camino, (20Km)
Today we’ll enjoy the last stage in the plain Castilian Plateau before approaching Ponferrada and Galicia.
Rabanal del Camino to Molinaseca, (25Km)
We leave the Meseta and go uphill to the famous Cruz de Ferro, a huge iron cross where it’s traditional for pilgrims to carry small stones to lay on the mound.
Then the Camino drops down to the cute village of El Acevo which has a long narrow street full of attractive old houses with overhanging balconies. We continue going downhill through Riego de Ambrós to Molinaseca. Before arriving in Molinaseca, we’ll cross the Roman bridge over the river Meruelo where pilgrims can take a refreshing bath in summer.
