French Route 6/8 - Walk From Leon to Ponferrada - 101km

Day 1: Leon – Start of your journey!
The historic center of Leon is well preserved and worth visiting. Over the course of time, Leon became the capital of the kingdom in the Middle Ages; a historic enclave on the pilgrim’s road to Santiago de Compostela. Don’t miss The Pulchra Leonina (the ‘Sistine Chapel’ of Spanish architecture) & the old Hospital de San Marcos.
Meals included: none
Overnight in Leon

Day 2: Leon To Villadangos del Paramo
Leaving Leon, the urban area continues almost as far as Virgen del Camino (7km). From this point on, the route becomes more interesting as you follow the historical Camino along the Plateau of Leon.

Day 3: Villadangos del Paramo to Astorga
