The first days of this stage will take you through the strange landscape of the Meseta plateau. The appeal of this region lies not in its obvious natural beauty, but rather in the wide and undisturbed views into this barren and seemingly surreal land.
Leaving the solitude of the Meseta, you reach the old royal city of León. An absolute highlight on this stage awaits you here: the famous cathedral of León, built in a French Gothic style. Also make time to visit the Pantheon Real and the royal sepulcher in the church of San Isidoro.
Leaving León, you will walk towards the city of Astorga, founded by the Romans. Its old Roman city walls are well maintained and its cathedral and the bishop’s palace, built by Antoni Gaudí, make this city a great final destination.
