R3 – Day 7: Ponferrada – Cacabelos 15.5km

Leaving Ponferrada you will pass through the village of Compostilla, a former mining town, followed by Columbrianos closely followed by Fuentes Nuevas and Camponaraya.

Arriving in Cacabelos you walk past the Hermitage of San Roque if it is open pop in it has been turned into a quirky little museum of sorts. Wander through the village and admire the clever street art to the end of the main road you will come to Iglesia de Santa Maria de la Plaza.

This is where you will rest tonight (You will be advised at time of booking if you are booked into Villafranca del Bierzo 23km)
