On this route you can enjoy pleasant walks, crossing wooded areas, intense greenery, and idyllic cultivated landscapes. You will also have the opportunity to visit numerous charming villages.

Other wonders on this stretch of the Camino de Santiago are the exquisite traditional gastronomy that you will find during all of its stages, and the numerous opportunities that you will have to meet other pilgrims.
