We traveled through the Leonese moor, flat terrain that runs through well-marked tracks and trails. As we get closer to Astorga, the terrain changes. We enter the region of Maragatería through beautiful towns and large houses, characteristics of this austere region.

We highlight the Hospital de Órbigo, the Puente del Paso Honroso, famous for the feat of the knight Don Suero de Quiñones in 1434 and for its festivals with medieval jousting.

As soon as we leave Rabanal del Camino, we begin the ascent towards Mount Irago, with Foncebadón at its summit. After passing through the mythical Cruz del Ferro (highest altitude of the road), we headed downhill through El Acebo, until we reached Molinaseca, with a magnificent Medieval Bridge and Ponferrada-capital of Bierzo (transition region between León and Galicia). Through vineyards and dirt tracks, we will reach Cacabelos, and then Villafranca del Bierzo.

We highlight at this stage: Foncebadón, which once housed a Council, the landscape from Mount Irago, Ponferrada with its Castle, of Templar origin, extraordinarily preserved, and in Villafranca del Bierzo the Romanesque Church of Santiago.

The stage runs through the vicinity of the old National Highway VI and through the valley of the Valcarce river, until we head steeply towards the mythical O Cebreiro and the Galician Holy Grail, entrance to the Camino de Santiago in Galicia, with the Sierras de Ancares and O Courel as witnesses.

From O Cebreiro, also on the rise, we will find the Altos del Poio and San Roque, to continue with a strong descent to Triacastela. The spectacular views will accompany us in this section of the stage.

From Triacastela, and by road, we head to the fabulous Samos Monastery, whose origins date back to the XNUMXth century.

Arrival Samos. End of the stage

Day 5: Samos-Palas de Rei stage (59 Kms)

Breakfast and Start of the stage.

Stage with constant ups and downs, not too long, but of great beauty. We will pass through wide wooded areas and numerous water courses and corredoiras. Tour with numerous villages and small towns.

Later we reached Sarria, the largest city we will find until we reach Santiago.

Portomarín, at the foot of the Belesar Reservoir will welcome us halfway.

In Sarria we highlight the Monastery of la Magdalena and in Portomarín, the Fortaleza de San Nicolas Church.

Arrival to Palas de Rei. End of the stage

Day 6: Palas de Rei-Santiago de Compostela Stage (66 Kms)

Breakfast and Start of the stage.

In this last stage of the Camino de Santiago by bike from León we will continue to find a terrain of constant ups and downs without great unevenness.

We run through dirt tracks and paved areas, close to the road and that cross small villages and cross numerous streams.

From Arzua we continue with the up-down, and we will continue passing through small towns.

The path continues to flirt with the asphalt of the road and crosses it from one side to the other on its way. We ascend to the top of Santa Irene and descend to head towards Pedrouzo between tracks of corredoiras and dense forests.

Once we have reached the town of Pedrouzo, and already very close to Santiago de Compostela, we first face a light route and then ascend to Monte do Gozo where if we look closely, in the distance, we can see the towers of the Cathedral of Santiago. From there, there is only the descent to the “Holy City” after a long journey.

We enter its old town, which deserves an in-depth visit to discover its grandeur and spectacularity that somehow takes us back to its medieval times. Its narrow streets will take us directly to its beautiful Plaza del Obradoiro and its imposing Cathedral, which is also worth admiring and exploring inside and out.
