Today begins closely near the N120 eventually crossing onto a dirt path into Tosantos. Heading out of Tosantos you come across the 12th century Ermita de Nuestra Señora de Peña, which has literally been dug out of the mountain.
Continue on a small incline to Villafranca Montes de Oca. Here you begin a long and solitary ascent to the Oca Mountains, crossing through gorgeous woodlands of fragrant oak, juniper, ash and pine trees, the last mountain range before the Meseta, all the way to San Juan de Ortega
San Juan de Ortega is a beautiful small hamlet in the middle of the mountains. Here you will find the 12th century Iglesia de San Juan de Ortega where you can find San Juan’s Romanesque sarcophagus.
