Opposite the town hall of Fuente de Cantos, you have to take a right to exit the village and cross the road to Medina de las Torres. There you access a gravel road that used to be a Roman road, and you have to walk 5 kilometres to the next village, Calzadilla de los Barros. If you want, you can take a small detour and visit the church of San Salvador, with its beautiful altarpiece.
Once you leave the village, you go back to gravel roads that traverse agricultural fields and rivulets that you will have to cross. You go past Puebla de Sancho Pérez through the Plaza de España, leading to the church of Santa Lucía.
From here until the end of this section you have to pay attention to signage, as it may be confusing. The end of this day is in Zafra, a medieval historic town. Its ancient wall still has 3 gates and shows how strategic the town was during the Reconquista.
You should pay a visit to the Alcázar-Palacio de los Duques de Feria, the Colegiata de la Candelaria, several manor houses (of the Mendoza de la Rocha, of the Conde la Corte), the convent of Santa Clara and the Plazas Chicas and Grande, the area where you can find most restaurants and night life. The Casa del Aljimez houses the City Visitor’s Centre, where you will find an explanation of the different cultures and peoples who left their imprint here.
