Information

From this day on we will appreciate a noticeable change in the landscape, which becomes more wooded and mountainous. Today is a long day, with frequent ascents and descents. We will start from Mombuey through the grove and follow the N-525 road and the highway until we reach Puebla de Sanabria, where we will enjoy strolling through its beautiful old town of medieval origin.

Map

We leave Mombuey from the church of Santa María, along a wooded path that accompanies the road in the direction of Puebla de Sanabria. We cross the bridge over the motorway and follow the signs to Valdemerilla, with the possibility of seeing the church of San Lorenzo. We continue to Cernadilla, with a baroque temple dedicated to the Purification and a tower with good panoramic views. We continue until we enter Palanzuelo, continuing along forest tracks until Entrepeñas and Asturianos. Both localities have accommodation.

We have 15 km to Puebla de Sanabria, we continue without loss passing through the towns of Palacios de Sanabria, Remesal, Otero de Sanabria and Triufé. From this last locality we have only 4 km to our destination. We cross the bridge over the river Tera and turn left to reach the old town. Ending our stage in the fabulous Puebla de Sanabria.

To consider

It is advisable to start the stage well provided with food and drink for the whole route. This is because in the more than thirty kilometres that separate Mombuey from Puebla de Sanabria, you will only find services in the village of Asturianos and Palacios de Sanabria.

The
Sanabria Lakes Natural Park
is the largest lake of glacial origin in the Iberian Peninsula. It is 13 km from the village, off the Camino. But it’s worth taking a taxi to visit and/or adding an extra day to your trip.
