Camino Sanabrés (The Sanabria Way)

Santa Marta de Tera-Mombuey

36 km Difficulty
This is a long section, but with plenty of options to spend the night, eat and make it shorter as you wish.

The flanks of the Tera are covered in greenery and the area of La Barca welcomes early risers after leaving Santa Marta towards Calzadilla de Tera, the next village on the route, 11 kilometres away. The ancient Roman road, the Via Augusta, used to run through this place going from Portugal to Astorga. You can either spend the night here or take the necessary provisions to continue the Camino.

A mere 2 kilometres, further along, you will find the village of Olleros de Tera, and then the dam of Nuestra Señora de Agavanzal, with the option of taking a detour at this point leading to the sanctuary of the same name.

After crossing over the dam, already with 18 kilometres behind you, you continue to the village of Villar de Farfón with its church of San Pedro and its two-century-old carved sculpture to then climb to the hilltop from where you can see Río Negro del Puente. One last push and you will be there, in the village where the Cofradía de los Falifos originated and also where the conqueror Diego de Losada was born; he was one of the founders of the city of Caracas, Venezuela.

Those who decide not to spend the night in Río Negro and continue to Mombuey still have 9 kilometres to reach this Zamoran village through paths and moors. The village is close to the A-52, and there you can find all services and also the parish church of La Asunción, with its 13th-century belfry. Legend has it that it was built by the Templars, and you can see the bust of an ox, as Mombuey includes the Spanish for ox, “buey”, in its name.

Tips from our postmen and women

Inma Fernández, Correos de Mombuey.


“In Mombuey you can enjoy our local food. If you come during the mushroom-picking season, you will find plenty of them, particularly the “boletus” kind. Bread is also famous here, as well as beef, as this is a traditional cattle-rearing area of Zamora. On the main road itself, you will find several shops where you can buy these delicacies”. Inma Fernández, Correos de Mombuey.
