Your Camino journey begins by leaving Leon on foot. Having walked through the urban outskirts, you’ll head out onto trails with far-reaching views across to the mountain tops of the Picos de Europa. En-route to Mazaarife, you’ll head over the Passo Honroso Puente, a 200m long medieval bridge with 20 arch-shaped spans which pilgrims have been crossing since the 12th century. In early June each year, a colourful jousting festival takes place in honour of the knight, Don Suero, who challenged all knights that dared to cross the bridge as a display of his affections for his love.
