"In each of us dwells a wanderer, a gypsy, a pilgrim. What matters most on your journey is how deeply you see, how attentively you hear, how richly the encounters are felt in your heart." ~ Phil Coustineau, from his book, "The Art of Pilgrimage."
Our day one on the Camino Teresiano was an easy first day's walk, with a beautiful start by the fortress walls of Ávila, a walk on medieval roads and a long downhill cruise into Gotarrendura.
A pilgrimage to Ávila, Spain, at the start of the Camino Teresiano, is a very appropriate place to begin the celebratory walk, commemorating the life of Santa Teresa de Jesús.
The Camino Teresiano, or The Way of St. Teresa, from "Cradle to Grave" is an historic walk from her birthplace in Ávila to her burial place in Alba de Tormes.

Day six on the the Camino de San Salvador
Day Five on the Camino de San Salvador is a long jaunt down two river valleys, first the Río Lena and next, the Río Caudal. On the way, you pass many historic places, the most significant being the 9th century UNESCO, world heritage Iglesia de Santa Cristina de Lena.
Our Day Four on the Camino de San Salvador
Day three on the Camino de San Salvador was an stunning climb out of Poladura to the Cross of San Salvador and the highpoint, the Canto la Tusa, and a gorgeous walk over the Puerto de Pajares at 1378 meters. The views of the mountains are nothing less than than fabulous!
By the end of day two on the Camino de San Salvador, the Way takes the pilgrimage traveler into the heart of the Cantabrian mountains, leaving civilization behind. The scenery and the difficulty that you have been waiting for, finally arrives!
Day one on the Camino de San Salvador is a walk northward out of León, leaving the Camino Francés far behind as it heads for the Cantabrian mountains of Asturias.
The Camino de San Salvador is perhaps the most mountainous of all the Caminos de Santiago. This short, pilgrimage path of only 122.14 kilometers (75.9 miles), figures by my GPS tracks, will physically test most of you! Do not be fooled by the short length.

Our recommendation for the best trekking pole. Carbon fiber construction (not aluminum) makes them ultra lightweight. Hide your poles in your pack from potential thieves , before you get to your albergue! (See more of our gear recommendations!)
