Stage 3: Tábara-Santa Croya de Tera (23.1 km)
Tábara-Bercianos de Valverd: 0-15,3 km
Bercianos de Valverde-Santa Croya de Tera: 15,3-23,1 (7,8 Km)
We leave Tábara from the hostel crossing the town until the church of Santa Maria, from where the camino leaves. At 0.9 km (photo 1) we return to the camino of the Step 2.
For the next two kilometres, until the crossroad of the ZA-121, you will notice roadworks of the AVE and it is possible the way may be cut off. It is best to ask, and in any case, there is always the option to continue along the ZA-121 Highway for a short while before rejoining the camino.
The road passes along a dirt track which is in good condition (photo 2). At 11.2 (photo 3) km we see a poster for the Bar Restaurante la Moña and a white arrow on a vertical stone tells us turn right. Although some pilgrims opt to go straight and go through Villanueva de las Peras, it is recommended that you take the right turn, which takes you to Bercianos de Valverde.
Continue straight on, cross the road that leads to Santa María de Valverde (photo 4) and you will enter Bercianos.
We cross the town of Bercianos de Valverde (photo 5 km 15.3) where there are no services, and we continue through a landscape of thickets and oak trees (photo 6 and 7). 3 km from Bercianos, at km 18.1, there is a shelter built by the owners of Casa Anita (photo 8). They bought this land and built a small shelter for the weary pilgrim. There is also a poster with information about the hostel.
The hostel of Casa Anita is 5 kilometres away. Follow the path until you get back to the highway from which we came and take the right (photo 9 km 21.0) which leads to Santa Croya. We follow the main street and at the end of town is Casa Anita.
