Information

Today we will embark on a stage very similar to the previous one, only a little more populated. From Fuente de Cantos, we will cross the almost 25 kilometers of meadows and fields of Extremadura that cover the stage, to finish in the town of Zafra.

Map

We leave the town of Fuente de Cantos through the Plaza de la Constitución, in the direction of the road to Medina de las Torres, from where we turn off onto an old Roman road in the direction of Zafra. Not long after we reach Calzadilla de los Barros, sheltered by the fields. From here we will continue towards a path parallel to the N-630, which we will soon leave as we cross several streams. If we continue on through fields of crops and livestock farms, we will cross the railway tracks to head towards Puebla de Sancho Pérez, where we can take a short break to tackle the last 4 kilometres of the route. We will leave Puebla de Sancho Pérez behind to take a path parallel to the Old Puebla road, from where we will enter today’s town: Zafra.

To consider

It is not a very long stage, but even so we can shorten it if we spend the night at
Puebla de Sancho Pérez
. This stage is also quite monotonous and, from Fuente de Cantos, we will cross a cultivated area with little tourist attraction until we reach the town of Zafra. We remind you that these moments of tedium and solitude can be perfect for meditation and self-discovery, which is another essential part of the Camino de Santiago.
