You will make your debut as a pilgrim in the most difficult stage of the whole itinerary, not because of the terrain but because of the distance to be covered. Even so, the effort will be more than rewarded by the beauty of the landscapes along the way. In the first part of the stage you will head inland, passing through some villages such as Santa Cruz de Bezana, Mompía and Boo de Piélagos.
In the second part you will enjoy the mountainous landscape of the north coast, where the village of Suances stands out, an ideal place to make a stop before reaching your destination. Once in Santillana del Mar you can enjoy one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. If you have time, it’s worth taking a taxi and making a trip to visit the Altamira caves, declared a World Heritage Site.
