Zamora to Puebla de Sanabria Map

As you head North West through Castilla y Leon, the landscape begins to change and switches from red earth farmlands to greener hills and woodland, inhabited by a wide range of wildlife. The major Rio Tera is also part of the landscape as the Camino comes across its banks on several occasions. We also walk through many typical rural villages, some of them mainly occupied by deserted stone houses and old churches. 

Highlights

Zamora

If you are visiting Zamora for a day or two I would suggest you go to Chillon. It is an excellent Tapas bar in the city which offers authentic Spanish food.

 

Granja de Moreruela

A really impressing place to see in Granja de Moreruela is the Monastery of Santa Maria. It is an old gothic church from the 12th century. The front of the building is still fully intact while the back is fully deconstructed, which makes the building even more impressive.

Puebla da Sanabria

The town of Puebla da Sanabria is an amazing place to spend some time exploring since it has been recognized as a Historic-Artistic Site. It still preserves most of the walls which once protected the city. Its magnificent castle dates from the second half of the 15th century and is the archetype of a medieval defensive structure; it stands at a height of 960 meters on a wide piece of flat land on top of a hill occupied by the town.

Itinerary

Day 1

ZAMORA (Arrival)

With a Romanesque cathedral, fortified walls and overlooking the Rio Duero, Zamora has it all to charm visitors from all over. Its architectural heritage is so rich it is commonly called “The little Salamanca”!


Day 2
18.7km

ZAMORA
to
MONTAMARTA

For this first walking day, the Camino runs through the typical Castilla y Leon landscape: red earth crop fields cut across by endless flat wide tracks that seem inhabited only by storks. There is little shade along the way, but the reasonable length of the day gives us a chance to get to Montamarta before the heat hits its peak. Short transfer to Zamora.


Day 3
21.9km

MONTAMARTA
to
GRANJA DE MORERUELA

Transfer from hotel back to Montamarta. On this day, we walk through the same background as on the previous day. The only difference being that we come across the Elsa dam and river several times.


Day 4
25.1km

GRANJA DE MORERUELA
to
TABARA

Today the landscape is a little bit greener with more trees and shelter from the sun but it keeps its flat shape and red earth. Overall, it is an easy and enjoyable stroll to Tabara.


Day 5
23.1km

TABARA
to
SANTA MARTA DE TERA

We leave Tabara to continue our way towards Santa Marta de Tera. The Camino runs through a plateau set between the Elsa River and Rio Tera so it is no wonder where all this sudden vegetation comes from! When arriving in Santa Marta, you can visit its 12th century Romanesque church.


Day 6
21km

SANTA MARTA DE TERA
to
VILLAR DE FARFON

Leaving Santa Marta de Tera, we enter the Sanabria Valley as the Camino now follows the course of the pretty Rio Tera. This is an enjoyable and beautiful stroll as we spend most of the day through the countryside. Quiet tracks, poplar trees, charming rural hamlets, water channels and dams will form part of the day. Short transfer to hotel in Camarzana de Tera.


Day 7
15km

VILLAR DE FARFON
to
MONBUEY

Transfer from hotel back to Villar de Farfon. The first few kilometres after Villar de Farfon are through the peaceful countryside, home of wild boars and even shy Iberian wolves! The vegetation then starts to change to scrub and bush lands and as we approach Mombuey, we have great views of the Sierra de la Cabrera in the distance.


Day 8
31km

MONBUEY
to
PUEBLA DE SANABRIA

As we leave Mombuey, the Camino heads to more open countryside even though there are still many poplar and oak trees to provide us with shade. When passing the village of San Salvador de Palazuelos, you can climb up the bell tower of Iglesia de Santiago to enjoy magnificent views over the surrounding landscape. We cross Rio Tera one last time.


Day 9

PUEBLA DE SANABRIA

After breakfast, we bid you farewell.
