The Camino passes the ruins of the Templar Castle and through Ponteferrado, a pretty medieval city, with less attractive surrounds and then continues on to delightful Bierzo.

Follow the path guiding you through the busy city of Ponferrada, this stage involves some road walking as you make your way through the city. When walking through the city you will have plent of chances to stop for a drink and some food, however be extra vigilant when following the shells as there will be some 'recommended route' which have been created to take you past specific shops.

Once out of the city you have Villafranca del Bierzo to look foward to, as in its micro climate vineyards have populated the area.

A bit of a flat road slog until Pieros about 26kms then through colourful vineyards with leaves changing to Autumn hues. Food & coffee stops at Ponferrada(opposite Castle) & Camponaraya. Alpine village approach to Villafranca.
