Then there's the hardest climb to the place called Cruz de Ferro , a huge iron cross where it is customary for pilgrims to throw a stone making a wish. It is a very old monument built on an altar dedicated to the Roman god Mercury .
Here , the pilgrim will notice the change from the plateau to the mountains.
An easy way leads to an abandoned military area. Its antennas are a good reference.
It begins the descent is very difficult because it is long and the road is stone.
It passes through the village of El Acebo at the end of the descent.
The next village is Riego de Ambros . From here , if it rained , we must be careful with the mud that makes walking difficult .
Decline continues and you can see the distance Ponferrada .
It passes through the town of Molinaseca .
The arrival in Ponferrada is not difficult and is done on easy.
