FROM LEON TO O CEBREIRO (154km)

We offer the possibility to do this itinerary for those who want a first contact with the French way, starting from Leon, with the possibility to extend our journey to Santiago afterwards. It is an itinerary of medium difficulty compared to others in which we will enjoy paths along León Mountains and the famous Bierzo valley.

We begin our journey in the wonderful city of León. During the stage we will cross the villages of San Miguel and Fresno. We recommend stopping along the route at the different important spots of the Jacobean route. The stage ends at Villadangos del Páramo, where we will find our accommodation.

Villadangos del Páramo – Astorga

For this stage the difficulty remains low. We can enjoy the nature that this route offers us along Órbigo River. The green path will lead us to Hospital de Órbigo. At the exit of the village we will have the opportunity to choose between the two roads that will get us, after a climb, to Santo Toribio cross. From there we can see Astorga, our goal for this stage.

Astorga – Rabanal del Camino

Even being a short stage, we recommend you to leave early to make the most of the day and visit the different highlights that it offers. We will find churches such as Santa María or Nuestra Señora de la Asunción build with its unique Romanesque style.

Rabanal del Camino – Molinaseca

This stage is characterized by the irregularity of the path. We will pass through Foncebadón, a one of the most important cities of the Jacobean route. We will visit one of the highest points of the French Way where the famous Iron Cross is located. A strong climb awaits us and will make us reach El Acebo. The last kilometers are up to Molinaseca, end of the stage and place t enjoy a well deserved rest.

Molinaseca – Vilafranca del Bierzo

Dificultad MediumTiempo estimado 6-7hDistancia32 Km

We will leave Molinaseca on the way to Ponferrada. This stage is not difficult but it is long in terms of kilometers.  The time invested will be rewarded by the landscape that we will find. We will cross towns as Cacabelos before arriving at Villafranca del Bierzo, where, if we have time after resting, it is recommended to pay a visit and discover its cultural and gastronomic offer.

Vilafranca del Bierzo – O Cebreiro

Dificultad HighTiempo estimado 6-7hDistancia30 Km

It is the last of the stages for this itinerary, so, even if you accumulate fatigue, we must make a last effort. Perhaps we are facing the longest and most difficult stage characterized by small villages such as Trabadelo, Portela or Vega de Valcarce. We will have to make a great effort to climb until the end of the journey, O Cebreiro.
