A stage on an incline which is split into two parts. The first part is up until Rabanal del Camino, on a moderate incline. The second is from Rabanal to Foncebadon on a steep incline, and is one of the toughest of all of the sections of the Camino Frances.
(1)Astorga-(2)Murias de Rechivaldo: 0-4.7 km
We leave Astorga along calle San Pedro, crossing the National VI and continuing along the road LE-142 (photo 1). We arrive at the shrine of Ecce Homo, which lies to our left. At this same point there is a road to our right which leads to the town of Valdeviejas, where there is a hostel. We follow along the road, passing across a bridge over the A-6 motorway and afterwards we take a footpath which runs parallel to the road (photo 2) and which brings us to Murias de Rechivaldo (photo 3).
(2)Murias de Rechivaldo-(3)Santa Catalina de Somoza: 4.7-9.3 (4.6 km)
A smoothly ascending footpath (photo 4 and 5) leads us to Santa Catalina (photo 6)
(3)Santa Catalina de Somoza-(4)El Ganso: 9.3-13.2(3.9km)
We cross Santa Catalina and take a small road (photo 7) which brings us to El Ganso.
(4)El Ganso-(5)Rabanal del Camino: 13.2-20.3(7.1km)
We cross El Ganso and return to the road (photo 8), which runs uphill until Rabanal del Camino. At the entrance of the town the arrows indicate a right turn but we can also continue along the road.
(5)Rabanal del Camino-(6)Foncebadon: 20.3-25.9(5.6km)
This is one of the toughest of all of the sections of the Camino Frances. We leave Rabanal along a path at the highest part of the town (photo 10) which brings us to the road which after a tough climb (photo 11) brings us to Foncebadon (photo 12).
