Camino Francés > León-O Cebreiro > Astorga - Rabanal del Camino (20,3 Km)

After walking the barren plains of the last stages, the landscape changes substantially and we start walking in the mountains of León. We leave Astorga towards Castrillo de Polvazares. We visit the chapel of Ecce Homo and take a path that leads us to Murias of Rechivaldo and then to Santa Catalina de Somoza and El Ganso. We will be walking among oak trees. After passing the chapel of Cristo de la Vera Cruz we will finally arrive at Rabanal del Camino.
