Our Journey begins in Calzadilla de la Cueza. After we leave the solitude of the Meseta, the Camino now passes through small, almost forgotten villages. In Sahagún we can explore the unique brick churches which go back to the time of the Moors. We then head towards the old royal city of León, and take a rest day to see the many sights of this ancient city: its Gothic cathedral, the Pantheon Real and, the royal sepulcher in the church of San Isidoro.
Another highlight along the way is Astorga with its many architectural gems, including the Roman city walls, its beautiful cathedral and the Bishop’s palace, designed and built by Antoni Gaudí. The next stage of the Camino hosts the famous Cruz de Ferro (Iron Cross), which lies in the Montes de León. Pilgrims traditionally leave a stone at the cross, representing the weight and sorrow they may wish to leave behind – a tradition that goes back to Roman and even Celtic times. Continuing through the fertile region of Bierzo, with its excellent wines, we reach our destination in Cacabelos.
Every morning, we offer a spiritual start into the day. Usually this means, that a short, interesting, and hopefully inspiring text will be read. This part is open for anybody who would like to participate.
