Stage 10: Requejo-Lubián (18.9 km)
Requejo-Padornelo (0-11.9 km)
Padornelo- Aciberos (11.9-15.7 km)
Aciberos-Lubian (15.7-18.9 km)
On this stage we climb to the highest point of the camino from Seville: the Alto del Padornelo, at 1350 m.
Leaving Requejo we have two options: go by the camino or by the highway.
The highway option (recommended for cyclists) has very soft slopes and is 3 km shorter than the camino option. On the other hand is more monotonous and we miss the beauty of the camino.
If we choose the highway we follow the N-525 until Padornelo (photos 1, 2 and 3).
If we choose the camino we leave Requejo by the street calle de la Carrera that will take us to the camino, which is well signposted. At 11.3 km (photo 4) the camino meets the highway, right at the entrance of Padornelo.
Past Padornelo follow the N-525 (photo 5) highway until 13.8 km (photo 6) where we have to turn right. We follow the N-525 (photo 7) until we reach the entrance of the small village of Aciberos (photo 8 km 15.6) where we leave the highway.
We cross the village of Aciberos and leave it, now on the camino. From this point there are 3 km down (photos 9, 10, 11 and 12) to Lubián. The first house we find in the village is the Hostel.
