Map for the route (ED50)


GPS waypoints for download (WGS84, gpx)

How to get there: Drive on the N-621 until you see a sign for the walking route "Lebeña 3,5 km, PR-S3" between the kilometer posts 153 and 154, close to the village of Castro. (Roadmap)

Distance: 2h15min/9km

By the sign (240 m) starts a track that passes a house and ascends above the gorge of Hermida. You enjoy a fine view to the rock walls of the gorge. The track turns into a path (11min) (300 m), which crosses a couple of gorges, before you encounter arrows guiding you to the right (23min) (305 m). From this point starts the difficult part, a steep climb along the bedrock. During the climb, you follow the white-yellow waymarks. When the steep part is over (29min) (340 m), you bend left. The alarmingly narrow path runs some 100 meter on the verge of a precipice, but becomes then very easy.

You walk in a beautiful oak forest to a fork (35min) (400 m), where you go left downhill. On your right towers an impressive rock pillar. The village of Lebeña turns up in the valley (44min) (420 m). The path widens to a track (49min), which descends to the village (1h02min) (260 m). Continue through the village to the church of Santa Maria de Lebaña (1h08min) (210 m).

Return on the same way back to the beginning of the route (2h15min)
