Stage 5:Puente de la Reina-Estella (21,7km)
A beautiful stage and easy in that there is only one notable slope; short but tough, before we get to Mañeru.
1.-Puente de la Reina-Mañeru: 0-4.9km
We leave Puente de la Reina over the bridge which gives it its name (see photo 1). Past the bridge we go left until we get to the road which we cross to take a detour which leaves to the left (see photo 2). We follow a path without any more complications (see photo 3) until we come to a steep hill. The climb is not long but is tough. It ends at the point where the path meets the motorway (see photo 4). From there a descent to the town of Mañeru awaits us (see photo 5).
We leave Mañeru along the calle Forzosa, named so because it is the road the passes by the cemetery and pilgrim or not, there it seems like we are going to meet our end. Without any more complications following the way through vineyards (see photo 6) we arrive at Cirauqui (see photo 7).
We leave Cirauqui along a roman roadway through a town ruins and get to the N-111 road, where A-12 crosses through (see photo 8). We continue along hilly path (see photo 9), and return to a section of the road (see photo 10) and again leave it to cross the meddevil bridge over the Salado river (see photo 11). A little before we reach Lorca we cross back over the motorway and continue along a dirt path (see photo 12) until the town of Lorca (ver photo 13).
We cross Lorca from end to end along the main street and continue along a path which runs to the left of the national road (see photos 14 and 15). Before arriving at Villatuerta (see photo 16) we return to the A-12 and cross beneath it through a tunnel.
We go through Villatuerta along calle Gines and over a medieval bridge. We leave further along to the left past the chapel of San Miguel and go out of the town and cross the road (see photo 17)
We continue along a path until a modern bridge which crosses over the river Ega. Continuing more or less parallel to the river (see photos 18 and 19) we arrive at Estella.
