R3 – Day 6: Molinaseca – Ponferrada 8km

After 4 days of walking, today is a very easy and short walk into Ponferrada, the only big city on the way to O Cebreiro. Take advantage of being in a city if you have to update any of your gear, wash or deal with practicalities and have a well-deserved rest.

The 12th century Templars Castle is especially worth visiting here.
