Today you will leave Extremadura and you will get to Castilla y León. You will get there through the Puerto de Béjar mountain pass. You will continue through the old Roman Road, you will go through some villages very touched by the Roman Empire.
You will start this stage in Aldeanueva del Camino, in the square where the town hall is located and the you will walk towards the national road. You will have to continue straight forward and then you will get to a roundabout, then you will have to continue and then turn left once you see a huge a signal that indicates the way to Hervás. This village is not in the original route so you will have to walk 4 kilometres to get there, but we strongly recommend visit it due to its beauty. Sobre todo destacan las edificaciones que aún se conservan en la zona baja del río, donde varias familias judías comenzaron a instalarse desde el siglo XV. Here you will also see the Iglesia de Santa María church.
Then you will return to the original route and you will walk next to the Embalse de Baños reservoir and then you will get to Baños de Montemayor, after eight kilometres walking through the national road. Once you get there you can visit its establishments and services and also its monuments. Then you will walk to a mountain pass called Béjar. Now you will change the asphalted road for and old Roman road, you will continue through it until get to the national road N-630 a little bit after. You will have to cross it and then continue through a path to the left to finally get to Castile and León. Then you will get to a neighbourhood called Estación. Then you will get to a path to the left that will get you to a bridge and then to a recreational area. Then you will have to get to the Cuerpo de Hombre river and you will have to cross it to walk through a path full of oak trees. A escasos metros deberemos desviarnos ligeramente de la ruta hacia la derecha, saltando una pequeña valla de madera a la derecha para poder ver de cerca uno de los miliarios mejor conservados de todo el trazado jacobeo. You will have to continue through some paths until get to Béjar that is lovely small village where you will find some monuments. Esta pequeña pero acogedora población de apenas cien habitantes nos ofrece la posibilidad de visitar la iglesia de la Asunción en la plaza mayor o la ermita del Santísimo Cristo de la Misericordia, pudiendo descansar en condiciones tras las duras jornadas anteriores.
