Astorga to Rabanal de Camino – 23.4 km/14.9 miles


Como estas! We took a room in a Hostal, so we could sleep in a little and see the sights of Astorga. Headed out about noon with sunshine all the way. An enjoyable walk, legs and feet are doing good. The trail led us through some very ancient Maragato villages. We stopped in one of them for coffee – Santa Catalina, a cobbled main street lined with stone buildings some of them crumbling and very authentic for this region on the foot of the Sierra. At 4:15 pm we arrived in Rabanal where Pilgrims rest before they take the steep path up and over Monte Irago – 4980 feet.

  1. the scenery is just amazing. looks like the weather is still cooperating with you all. from what your write you got quite the walk ahead of you on the next stretch. can’t wait to read your next post and see the pictures. Truly, THANK YOU for sharing. Amazing

  2. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
