On this very flat stage we will reach a much photographed bridge shortly after the middle of the route: after Hospital de Órbigo and Puente de Órbigo we cross the Rio Órbigo over the famous «Passo Honroso» bridge, where a knight and a squire succeeded in 1434 to stop enemy superiority for 30 days. Following this long bridge over a wide stream bed, the path will lead us back to the main road, which we will then follow to the stage town of Villadangos Del Páramo.
