You will leave Montamarta in the direction of Fontanillas and you will have the opportunity to make a short detour through Castrotorafe, “Zamora la Vieja”, to visit the ruins of this interesting medieval town. Afterwards, from Fontanillas you will pass through Riego del Camino, before arriving at the end of the stage in Granja de Moreruela.
In Granja de Moreruela, you will have the opportunity to visit the church of San Juan Bautista, built with stones from the monastery of Santa María de Moreruela. This monastery is located 3 kilometres from the village and is currently in a state of reconstruction, as it was a historically important building, being considered the first Cistercian monastery in Spain.
From Granja de Moreruela, you can decide whether to continue the original route of the Vía de la Plata from Salamanca, to join in Astorga with the French Way and continue the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela; or continue the itinerary along the Sanabrés Way.
